Sedevacantists can’t be sure that John XXIII through Benedict XVI have been obstinate against Church doctrine, therefore, they are still true popes.

This common objection has been used by all so-called traditional Catholics united to Rome.

True popes can most assuredly be in error in good faith as many have been. Such cases come from popes mistakenly speaking or writing something against Catholic doctrine which is defined after the incident.

For instance, Pope John XXII, on All Saints Day in 1331 AD, said in a sermon that souls do not attain the beatific vision until after the General Judgment.

Because the statement was very controversial, he retracted it on his deathbed.

However, the doctrine was not defined until after Pope John’s death, making Pope John only a material heretic or a good-will Catholic in error.

His successor, Benedict XII, issued the Constitution “Benedictus Deus” in 1336 AD, asserting that the blessed souls of the dead “see the face of the triune God immediately after death”.

Interestingly enough, this case is used by anti-sedevacanters to demonstrate that popes can make serious doctrinal error without automatically losing his office reinforcing the original objection that we can’t be sure of obstinacy.

Of course, some of these same Vatican 2-ites can see how manifestly heretical this statement by John XXII was but fail to see how manifestly heretical the numerous statements that have come from John 23 through Benedict XVI which contradict previously defined and repeated doctrine unlike John XXII.

It is an absurd argument to use this case against sedevacantism.

But what about obstinacy?

Again, the original objection is stating that the last 5 claimants to the papacy are at best material heretics since it already implies that they are indeed against Church doctrine but not pertinacious or contumaciously so.

In other words, the last 5 claimants to the papacy were ignorant but in good faith.

In fact, with their PHD’s of theology in hand, they were so incredibly stupid that when they decided to change the church with Vatican 2, they didn’t realize that their new laws, doctrines, sacraments, and worship service were previously condemned by many popes?

You know better, I know better, our children know better, but they didn’t know better!

Are you serious, anti-sedevacanters?

Really?

Was it a mere coincidence that Lucia warned (by Our Lady) that a very great chastisement (material and spiritual) was about to befall the world between 1957 and 1960?

Was it a mere coincidence that John XXIII refused to read the 3rd Secret of Fatima in 1960 as asked by Our Lady because, as she said, we would understand the message in that year?

Was it a mere coincidence that for years John XXIII and Benedict XVI were on record for suspicion of modernism when it was them that changed everything with Vatican 2 as Ratzinger said that the condemnations against modernism were obsolete?

Was it a mere coincidence that John XXIII and Paul VI (who were reported to have been initiated into the Masonic Brotherhood in Paris in the late 40’s) incorporated the backbone of Masonry into Vatican 2 (which was previously and repeatedly condemned) by teaching that man has a right to practice his own (false) religion in public by way of speech or writing without hindrance?

Was it a mere coincidence that Rome’s official (1994) catechism did not make one reference to the condemnations against modernism by Pope St. Pius X?

You really think we can’t know for sure that they were obstinate?

This is not a real objection to sedevacantism but a mere excuse not to accept the truth.

During that glorious reign of Pope St. Pius X, Jesuit priest George Tyrrell (1861 – 1909) was exposed for being a Modernist theologian and scholar.

St. Pius had disciplined Tyrrell and ultimately saw to it that he be expelled from the Jesuit order in 1906 and denied the sacraments until his death in 1909.

However, he did receive Extreme Unction on his deathbed but denied a Catholic Burial. When his friend Fr. Henri Bremond made a sign of the cross over his grave, he was punished by the Church.

When the greatest popes reign, you find greatness within.

Heresy was not tolerated during the time of Pope St. Pius X calling modernism the “Synthesis of all Heresies.”

The legacy of Pope St. Pius X was his condemnations against Modernism.

Later, Ratzinger, aka Benedict XVI, would call those teachings obsolete in his “Instruction of the Ecclesial Vocation” published in the L”Ossrvatore Romano, June 27, 1990, p. 6.

Not surprising that the 1992 Catechism of the Catholic Church failed to include any of Pope St. Pius X’s teachings against modernism.

How ironic that the greatest pope in 500 years along with his legacy would be excluded from the definitive catechism.

But of course it is not ironic at all. Both, the founder of the the new religion of Rome, Roncalli (John XXIII) and Benedict XVI, were on record for years for suspicion of modernism. Their Vatican 2 religion is the result of their modernist philosophy which makes all those condemnations of Pope St. Pius X to be considered null and void.

After Tyrrell, another Jesuit, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, picked up where Tyrrell left off.

He was a priest, paleontologist, and geologist.

His works promoted macro evolution while pointing to a cosmic Christ. His writings were condemned and denied any imprimaturs.

Pope Pius XII condemned many of his ideas in the encyclical Humani Generis.

Chardin died in 1955 but his legacy of modernism lives on in the hearts of such men as Benedict XVI who praises him in several works.

When I was still united to Rome, I remember reading Ratzinger’s book, “The Spirit of the Liturgy,” because everybody was talking about how great this book was.

In it, Ratzinger references de Chardin as one theologian with the right ideas.

Even then, I was shocked. I remember throwing away the book immediately for in my mind, de Chardin was satanic.

I didn’t know just how right I was until I read “Hostage to the Devil” by the late Fr. Malachi Martin.

In his book, Fr. Malachi tells 5 true stories of demonic possession in America.

In the second chapter called “Father Bones and Mr. Natch,” Fr. Malachi tells how a Catholic priest becomes possessed by a devil from reading the works of de Chardin. The philosophy of Teilhard de Chardin is so satanic that reading his works can open doors to another dimension. In other words, it is like playing with the Ouija Board.

Yet on July 24, 2009, Benedict XVI, who is the leader of the largest religion in the world, once again praised the vision of de Chardin.

The late Fr. Malachi Martin spoke about two types of demonic possession, partial and perfect. In his book, all 5 of the possessed were partially possessed which allowed them to be exorcised.

However, there is no exorcism for the perfectly possessed.

According to Fr. Malachi, the perfectly possessed have perfectly given their wills over to Satan, and therefore, act like normal people who go to work, play with their kids, and go to mass on Sundays. They include doctors, lawyers, congressman, and even priests. Two perfectly possessed individuals who have never met will instinctively know one another as belonging to Satan.

With all that has been said of the last five claimants to the papacy, it is hard for me not to believe that all of them have been perfectly possessed.

Especially, now, when a man such as Teilhard de Chardin is praised by the latest antipope Benedict XVI.
