Last week, I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Jesse Russell on his “Saturday Night Trad” podcast where we talked about the controversy surrounding Bishop Fulton Sheen, the conciliar canonization process in general, “Big Tent” traditionalism, and other topics.
God willing, we hope to do more such programs in the New Year in video format.
Good job on the podcast Louie.
It’s Truth that matters. Let the chips fall where they may.
For some reason I can’t get this to play.
Good stuff. Looking forward to more.
People don’t need fancy production values to become interested.
If that were true the mainstream media wouldn’t be losing viewers, and long-form podcasts and videos have taken off on Youtube and elsewhere. Great to listen to while driving or doing other work, and you’d be surprised at how many people just want to get to the point without any need for fireworks or pomp.
So don’t feel bad. So long as the audio is clear, people will want it.
It’s just a Youtube video.
Try using this direct ink.
Still not working for some reason.
I get where you are trying to parse out how we are to see the Holy Father and behave toward in order to determine whether the See has been vacant since Pius XII. But you also need to take into account the HISTORICAL way that the Church in her members has behaved and thought toward the Holy Father. There were instances where they rose up against him, called him to task for his error etc and he is still today considered Pope, even by our traditional ancestors. Even Sacred Scripture has St. Paul publicly going against the Pope, St. Peter.
The reason I don’t ascribe to the Sede position is simple. I believe Our Lord when He says “I will always be with you.” For Our Lord to allow us to be not only without a head shepherd but without ANY shepherd (unless you have doggedly research the slim potential of some random priest having the correct “lineage” back to Pius XII), without ANY valid sacraments for over half a century is just beyond the pale. That means that billions of people who considered themselves Catholic were at best baptized. No valid confessions. No valid eucharist. In other words, we are ALL doomed for I have surely sinned in this life AND Our Lord Himself said that unless we eat His flesh and drink His blood we have NO life within us.
I don’t think Our Lord is such a jerk as that. Evil abandons. Our Lord does not. It’s not Who He Is…He sacrifices, He endures, He suffers…for He is love…and love doesn’t end:+)
When I get lost in this fog of crazy I make sure to listen to holy priests such as Fr. Michael Rodriguez who reminds us of the basics, the truth and of God’s grace to overcome anything:+)
God bless you, dear Louie:+)

Don’t get confused with the dogmatic home-alone position and the sedevacantist position. Most Catholics who believe the Seat is vacant (ie. sedevacantists) do not believe that there are no valid sacraments. The Lord is still with us just as He is still with us during every interregnum.
“Where two or more are gathered in My name, there I am in the midst of them”. Matthew 18:20
This is not an Interregnum; no Conclave is assembled to elect a true Pope, and the 18th day for it to “meet to elect” has long since passed.
Point being MMC……the Lord is still with us even though the Seat is vacant.
Of course, just not in the way some choose to believe out of fear and lack of Faith.
Oh’ and the human fiat as opinion—-it’s simply worth, my2………..cents:,
You miserable, non-Catholic, religion of man adherent, fool. Where two or more who actually hold the divine and Catholic Faith are gathered, you imbecile, as the true Church has always taught, the prayers of the heathen as you, are simply not heard by Almighty God, as you blaspheme Him in worshipping bread and wine as though it could possibly be His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. It is pure, unmitigated heresy to profess that the Blessed Sacrament can be present on the earth with Apostolic Succession gone from the face of the earth for 62 years and running now, you miserable miscreant, non-Catholic fool. You deny the inerrant teaching of the Early Church Fathers, warning us that the prophetic day would come when the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass would be gone without exception, from the face of this now scorched and barren earth for 62 years, and that would also be commensurate with the time of the very person of Antichrist’s reign. You are so utterly blind in your pseudo-intellectual pride, that you cannot see that which is plainly before you, as a 10 year old would, who actually held the divine and Catholic Faith, that Gift both freely given and completely undeserved, in the Unity of Faith, which remains visible, you miscreant imbecile. Submit to the Faith or loose your miserable soul to Hell for all eternity, you fool. I pray you submit. In caritas.
And again it’s 2Vermont in blasphemy,
You miserable non-Catholic, religion of man adherent, imbecilic fool. That which is right before your belligerent, blinded eyes, you simply cannot see. You are such an arrogant wretch, that you deny the inerrant teaching of the Early Church Fathers, which is deFide, you heathen, as neo-pagan fool. The day would come to pass in its prophesied time, deFide, when the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass would fail WITHOUT EXCEPTION, and that would be the time of the person of Antichrist, as the efficient cause of the loss of the Holy Sacrifice, you neo-pagan fool. Prove Apostolic Succession is present in the false prophets and wolves in sheep’s clothing, who you freely choose to receive false sacraments from you wretch, by witnessing the divine, perpetual, living, Ordinary and Universal Magisterium, you miserable non-Catholic fool. You cannot do this as the Magisterium is living and Teaching and Governing, while it is perpetual, as infallibly taught in, “Satis Cognitum”, etc., and the divine Magisterium teaches that to have the Holy Sacrifice without Apostolic Succession present in the world, is a perfect LIE, from the Father of Lies, you miscreant imbecile. The divine Word of God in His Ordinary and Universal Magisterium, is Jesus the Christ with us unto the Last Day, you blind fool. As ASB just warned you, demonstrate the Conclave in play now and for the past 62 years, involved in the business of electing the next Vicar of Christ, as that simply MUST BE, if we are in an, “interregnum”, as the true Catholic Church teaches an interregnum actually is in reality. God have mercy on your soul, woman. In caritas.
Dear IC–It is only fair to tell you that I do not read any of your comments especially if it addressed to me. Don’t waste your precious time and blistered fingers on me.
It is written simply to oppose your unending stream of heresy with Magisterial Truth, if not for your sake, for some poor soul who actually seeks the Truth and not their own eternal damnation, you miserable, miscreant fool. In caritas.
Wowie, Sparks fly! But I do appreciate the passion all of you have for the truth as best you can understand it. Most of this is beyond me, but I always learn a lot from even your sparring and disagreements.
Where did Paul VI make that “smoke of Satan” comment?
