SEDEVACANTE INTERNATIONAL John Paul II’s Death April 3, 2005
1955 Watercrest Cir.
Lawrenceville, GA 30043 E-mail <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Praised, extolled by the World.
Extraordinary Pope. “John Paul the Great. “ (Italian President Carlo Ciampi)
“Universal Father” (Title of a book to be published in May).
A Pope for the people. “A man who bridged nations, religions and ages (USA Today)
Champion of human dignity, human rights.
Apostle of world’s peace. Committed to peace and reconciliation. “Most traveled Pope... preaching peace and unity” (CNN)
“Globe-trotting pontiff helped topple dictators, charmed world with his warmth” (Atlanta Journal C.)
Perpetual motion papacy.... Determined to make the world his parish. 124 countries visited in 104 trips.
Church shepherd and a catalyst for world changes. “Populist blend of showmanship, evangelism and impassioned appeals for human rights, peace, disarm-ament and justice for the poor and the oppressed” (The New York Times). Theologians argue: Spectacular trips left no lasting results... Religious equivalent of rock concerts that failed to offer something transcendent. Enormous financial costs of the trips.
It’s well known that the big secular media have been long since before Vatican II Council, at the service of the Prince of the World. J.P. II by obtaining their praise, on mundale issues on terrestrial herebelow not on everlasting hereafter, contradicts what is expected from true Apostles of Christ :”I have given them Thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world” (Jn. 17, 14) “But I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. (Jn. 15, 19). “In the world you will have distress” (Jn 16, 33). The mission of a Peter’s successor and Christ’s Vicar on earth is to “teach all nations... Teaching them, to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you” (Mt. 18, 19-20). That mission concerns the soul salvation, by conversion, repentence and following Christ in bearing each one’s cross to attain paradise beatitude. “The friendship of this world is the enemy of God.” (James 4, 4). - Now this world is in distress with crimes, violence between men and men, between nations and nations on global level, and threat of a third world war, a nuclear one. Peace, peace is the greatest problem. The perennial causes of world sufferings must be found in man’s inclinations viciated from the Original Sin of mankind parents Adam and Eve : The seven Capital Sins of pride, covetousness or greed, lust, anger, gluttony, envy and sloth are inherent to fallen humankind. Sins are unbriddled in this atheist society in rebellion against God and God’s commandments. Sins of lust, injustice and pride seem surpass those of Sodom and Noah times, provoking God’s wrath and chastisement. How and where to find remedy ? National and international laws cannot prevent crimes and violence, nor human justice chastize adequately all criminals. J.P. II rallied all the false-religion leaders to pray their false gods for world peace. False remedy, unworthy of his divine mission and duty given by Christ He neglected to teach repentence, conversion like prophet Jonah in Niniveh in ancient times. He failed to clamour the gravity of the errors in tenets and perversions in morals. Nowhere is the collapse of christendom more deplorable than in the former catholic Europe now becoming an anti-christian European Union, and the clergy sex scandal not only in the USA but in most other developed countries. Apocalyptic times are upon us. No more peace seems possible but dreadful justice at hand.
In the inner circle of the Vatican, the same biased appreciation of the merits of J.P. II inspired sort of triumphalism. “Christ opens the door (of the paradise) for John Paul II this evening or this night,” Vatican says. (Atlanta Journal C. quoting a declaration of Angelo Comastri, the Pope’s vicar general for Vatican City, when death seems imminent and unavoidable). - This self-assurancre and confidence sweep away the fear of God’s judgement following every man’s death, expressed in the millenial belief that the day of judgement is day of justice no more mercy. Dies irae dies illa... Judicandus homo reus (It’s the day of wrath... Man (appearing before God’s tribunal) as sinner to be judged. (See St. Augustine’s prayer imploring forgiveness and mercy, at the death of his mother St. Monica. Appendix 1). Why that change of belief ? Because of the new teaching of J.P. II’s Catechism on: “universal and absolute predestination of all men, to grace, to the remission of sins and eternal life ... Son of God united, through His mysteries, to all men forever, infallibly saving them all. (Appendix 2). Such errors of a modernized Catholicism flatter and deceive the common people, adding to the popularity of the Conciliar Popes among the pagans, heretics and in the same time destroying the true Faith.
Destroyed the true faith by gutting Catholicism of its essentials.
Under the fallacious pretext of renewal and openness, J.P. II continued his predecessor Conciliar Popes in dismantling the millenial traditional dogmas and practices, thus creating a new Church. New Canon Law. New Catechism. New Liturgy. New Sacraments, New Way of the Cross. Even a new Rosary, changing a cherished Holy Tradition dated back to the 12th century. The new catechism of J.P. II poisoned the true faith, in blatant and insinuated assertions picked up and classified in twelve chapters of heresies by Professor G. de Nantes. (See Appendix 2). Among the new Sacraments, the most harmfull changes are the ones on the Holy Orders. Priests and Bishops ordained or consecrated under the new rite are false priests and false Bishops. New priests receive no authority to offer the Mass nor to absolve sins; new Bishops no duty and priviledge as detailed in the old rite. The new Canon law, in articles 1055, 1098, insists on the contract character of the Sacrament of Matrimony and opens it to easy annullment under most futile pretexts, thus destroying the fundamentals of the family. Most destruct-ive is the New Mass. Meant to replace the millenial true Mass that is the Tridentine Mass of St. Pius V, it was fabricated with the help of six Protestant pastors in order to render it acceptable to all Protestants. It’s a master piece of ambivalance, wherein the essential character of Mass-sacrifice is so blurred out that the Protestants regard it as non-existant while the catholics think it not totally disappeared. In the dogmatic field, the total difference of the New Mass compared to the old Traditional one, has been exposed by Cardinal Ottaviani and his team of theologians (See the Ottaviani intervention). In the practical field, the New Mass is open to uncontrolable variations made by the priest celebrants according to their personal inspirations. The New Mass, said no more in latin but in vernacular languages with abuses – specially altar-girls, communion on hands in standing position - and variations ad infinitum, destroyed the unity of the Church – unity being one of the four essential characters of Christ’s Church. Oecumenism and dialogue are no less deceiving and destructive than false Mass. By promoting them as essential of modern catholicism, J.P.II contradicts Christ’s order to “teach all nations”, leaves the heretics and pagans in their errors while silencing what is essentially catholic. Another destruction tactic has been refusing to condemn heresies and expel heretics. Dissenters publicly teach errors, and remain indemn, causing perversion in every aspect of christian life. The ‘sin crying to God for vengeance’, - that’s sodomy as practiced by the homosexuals in the ancient Sodom, - is now defended and propagated even among the clergy as an alternative way of life. The total perversion of dogmas and ethics developed and implemented by Paul VI and John Paul II take their origin from new teachings of Vatican II Council. ( See the Book of accusation for heresy, by Professor Abbé Georges de Nantes against Paul VI. Appendix 2). The Conciliar Church thus is no more the true Church founded by Christ and perpetuated through two millenia. It’s a humanistic, modernist, heretic and schismatic Church. It uses treacherously the Catholic appearance while gutting all catholic substance. By contradicting formers true Popes’ teachings, J.P. II becomes false Pope.
Sedevacante and new true Pope.
At the time of the Vatican II Council, some clearsighted minds had seen the risks, errors of John XXIII and Paul VI. A champion of orthodoxy, Professor in Philosophy and Theology Abbé Georges de Nantes followed steps by steps the statements of Paul VI in conjunction with the resolutions of the Council and prepared his great Book of accusation for heresy, schism and scandal against Paul VI. Ten years later, in 1973, he and 68 supporters came to the Vatican and deposited the formal complaint document in the hands of Paul VI himself. But the only Bishop with sufficient credibility and courage to declare the chair of Peter vacant was Msgr. P. M. Ngo Dinh Thuc, Archbishop of Hue in Vietnam. He held three doctorates in Philosophy, Theology and Canon Law, plus a Licencié d’Enseignement. He was honoured with “Plenitude of Apostolic powers with all necessary faculties” by two Popes Pius XI and Pius XII. The six charges he forwarded are: New Mass invalid, modernism, false oecumenism, worship of man, liberty in embracing whatever religion and refusal to condemn heresies and expel heretics. (See Sedevacante International here below).
Now by adopting the many perversions of Vatican II Council, mainly the three heresies on Religious Liberty, Oecumenism and Universal salvation, the present College of Cardinals has become college of heretics. False college with false Cardinals has no power to elect any new true Pope. “The 1917 Canon Law foresaw this abnormal case, and in its Canon 20 provided a solution. In extra-ordinary circumstances when thre voters endowned with normal right of electing fail to their prerogative, there can be a suppletory – or remedial – right for their substitutes. This right is to be determined according to the four guidelines: legibus latis in similibus, generalibus juris principiis cum aequitate canonica servatis, stylo et praxi Curiae Romanae, communi constantique sententia doctorum. A spanish professor, Dr. Tomas Tello Corraliza made research on these four fields of: similar laws, canonical principles of higher scope, general practice of the Roman Curia and common, constant opinion of doctors, then he came to conclude: The result of researches on the four criteria: legal, juridical, praxis and doctrinal, is an amazing and harmonious convergence on the same norm: the rightful electors to organize a papal election in the present circumstances are the faithful Bishops” (See his Dictamen. Basic guidelines for a Papal election. May 1994). The ‘similar Canons’ Corraliza consulted being 109, 166; the ‘praxis’ of the Church he referred to is found in the reliable documentation of the Dictionnaire de la Theùologie Catholique. Article Election des Papes; the ‘doctors’ he personally, (and some of recent researchers mentioned by him: Abbé V. M. Zins, Daly J. Briton, H. Johas, K. J. Mock) consulted, being Cajetan, Vitopria, St. R. Bellarmino, John of St. Thomas, Dom Grea, L. Billot and Ch. Journet. - Another researcher, Dr. Homero Johas, a Brazilian professor, in his study on the necessity of a Pope, said:”God did not determine the form of the papal election, but the necessity of the papal election continues to be of divine mandate.” He then discussed the suppletory right based on opinions of doctors in the history of the Church, then affirmed that in extraordinary circumstances, the power to elect a Pope is transferred to the Church by restitution. Restitution, as explained by Cajetan (Apologia. Chap. XIII) being transmission from a superior to the immediate inferior. The rightful electors now are the faithful Bishops either many or few whom we may trust at the present times. Professor Corraliza precised: To the sedevacantist Episcopal body exclusively correspond the duty and the right of the papal election in the present circumstances. - What electoral procedure is to be followed? When Pope Pius VI was kept prisoner by Napoléon, he gave wide powers to the Cardinals to decide about the law of the Conclave, as well as other ceremonies and formalities for the next papal election. His successor, Pius VII did the same. Pius IX, acting in consequence of the invasion of the pontifical States, also established a particular legislation as an alternative for the case when the ordinary norm could not be observed. Professor Corraliza quoted all that from the Dictionnaire de la Théologie Catholique to support his statement that the rightful Bishop electors are sovereign to plan the specific formalities and procedure of this election: number and qualification of representative electors, majority required etc. Practically, the mass of the faithful laity have to know who are the ‘trustworthy sedevacantist Bishops who remain faithful to the Traditional Church’ as of before Vatican II Council? Are they to be found only among the Apostolic successors of Archbishop P. M. Ngo Dinh Thuc? (See more in III. 9 Suppletory Right versus False Cardinals, by NTT USA NEWS)

- Basic consideration: On the 7 December 1965, by proclaiming officially the documents of Vatican II Council which contain novelties incompatible with the Holy Tradition – specially the heresies on Religious Liberty, Oecumenism and Universal Salvation – Paul VI and the world Bishops in communion with him became public, manifest heretics and fell off their pastoral duty and dignity ipso facto.
- Thesis I: How credible is the election of Pius XIII?
- Thesis II: We must have a new true Pope. Why and How?

(Some excerpts from the above dossiers:) Absurdity of a materialiter Pope as defended by Msgr. Guérard des Lauriers and his followers specially Msgr. Berthout in France, Msgr. McKenna in the USA... Legally elected was Pope Martin V in 1417 despite the fact that out of the 56 electors, only 8 or 9 were perhaps valid Cardinals and more than half of the electors were not Cardinals at all.... In case of absolute necessity when the Church has no more true Cardinals, then other delegates can and ought to come forward for a papal election... “If anyone does not , with mind and lips, reject and anathematize all the heretics together with their impious writings even to the least portion, condemnatus sit.” (Denz. 271-272). There can be nothing more dangerous than those heretics who admit nearly all cycles of doctrine, and yet by one word, as with a drop of poison. infect the real and simple faith taught by Our Lord and handed down by Apostolic Tradition." ” Paying undue tribute to non-Popes Paul VI and J.P. II as true Vicars of Christ is committing treachery against Christ Himself, and addressing those Pope-players as Holy Father is either lying or idolizing. What to foresee toward the papal election ? Accelerated information and studies. International Organizer Committee. International Conference.
The fact of sedevacante offers easy solutions to most inextricable problems. Fr. Gruner, marian apostle with his Fatima Crusader magazine leading millions of faithful on true devotion to the Blessed Virgin, wanted to please both the Pope and the Mother of God in an impos-sible endeavour. Came the moment when the Vatican condemned him for his apostolate activities . If he saw clearly that J.P. II was a false Pope, he had not to spend so many millions and so much time pleading for his innocence and not regain the favour of the Pope. The Neumann Press, if it had known J.P. II as false Pope , had not taken so much pain in “begging John Paul II to restore old teachings of his predecessors”. Futile and vain effort in begging a non-Pope. In Italy a group of traditional priests who seceded from the Society of Priests of Saint Pius X, spent much time to analyze truths and errors in John Paul II’s writings, calling him Holy Father and praying for him as such in their daily Mass, as their former leader Archbishop M. Lefèbvre did. Had they seen J.P. II as false Pope, they would have used their great effort for having sooner a new true Pope. The sedevacante truth helps clear up the mess of opinions in the current debate on The Remnant magazine on Independent priests. Impossible to please both the Traditional magisterium and the Conciliar heretic Popes and Bishops A small number of those priests suffer real persecution from local Bishops just because of their traditional Latin Mass. If they are convinced that those Bishops are false Bishops like their head false Pope J.P. II in Rome, they would not have to bother about their persecution. All that they have to do is to declare they come outside of this Conciliar Church. On the other hand as no priest can be independent from an episcopal authority, they have to look for a true traditional Bishop, sedevacantist one, get re-ordained by him if they were ordained in the new invalid rite, then submit themselves to him.
We all are more or less late to recognize that the chair of Peter has been vacant since the 7 December 1965. Because there are poisons of heresies in the documents of Vatican II Council that make Popes, Bishops who accept them become heretics. Most of us lack the firmness of a jurist to admit that an heretic Pope is no more member of the true Catholic Church. Despite all appearance, he has no more authority over the catholic faithful than a Protestant pastor. We lack a serious knowledge in history of the Church to see how heresies have been condemned and heretics expelled inexorably from the Church in the past . The monastery of St. Peter Canisius in Fribourg, Switzerland, made long research and public accusations for heresy against J.P. II before coming to conclude, in 1986, that the chair of Peter was vacant. (See their Oratory Catechism wherein are enumerated fifteen main errors and heresies in the Conciliar Church and ten complaints against J.P. II.)
We beg our sedevacantist Bishops to agree on organizing an international Committee for the preparation of a papal election among the remnant Church. We ask various sedevacantist groups on the four continents to make themselves known to each other, and flock around the sedevacantist Bishops we can trust, demanding to have a new true Pope. We invite the followers of local Popes to participate in this international effort to make one of their Popes accepted universally if possible.
The next true Pope will restore the tiara on his head as symbol of the supremacy of the successor of Peter. He will have to restore all the teachings on dogma and morals as of before 1958; restoring in particular the old Liturgy with Tridentine Latin Mass and latin gregorian chants. He will proclaim null and void all decisions of Vatican II Council and every act of the Conciliar Popes, thus making his reign succeed to Pius XII’s after a long inter-regnum of some 46 years. He will clear up his surroundings inside the Vatican of the “hidden hand” of the free-masons among the ranks of the clergy itself. (Cf. The Broken Cross by Piers Compton). He will convert the world Bishops lured by past Conciliar false Popes into heresy and schism, help them cleanse up their bishopric of the evil of dissenters and homosexuals in their cumbersome bureaucracy. He will restore and promote the latin as official language of the Church. There is to suspend all Mass-celebrants who have no sufficient knowledge in latin to understand what they say to God in their prayers at the Mass, until they have studied enough latin to do so.
Nguyen Tinh Thuat
Laying aside for a while her good deeds, for which I give thanks to Thee, God of my heart, my praise and my life, I do now beseech Thee for the sins of my mother. Hearken unto me, I entreat Thee by the Healer of our wounds, Who hung upon the tree, and now sitting at Thy right hand, maketh intercession to Thee for us. I know that she dealt mercifully and from her heart and forgave her debtors their debts; do Thou also forgive her whatever she may contract in so many years since the water of salvation had cleansed her. Forgive her, Lord, forgive, I beseech Thee. Enter not into judgement with her. Let Thy mercy be exalted above Thy justice; for Thy words are true and Thou has promised mercy unto the merciful...

The above-mentioned heresies are in line with those of Pauls VI in the latter’s declarations in 1964-1965 in conjunction with the the resolutions of the Council in progress. Professor Abbé de Nantes followed closely the statements of Paul VI from 1963 to 1973 and wrote his Book of accusation for heresy, schism and scandal against Paul VI .
- Capital accusation : Heteropraxis: Religious Liberty. Heterodoxy: The cult of man.
- HERESY. Your personal heresy: MADSU (Movement of Spiritual Animation of the Universal Democracy)
Instead of the Church: Humanity. Instead of the Gospel: Chart of human Rights. Instead of God’s kingdom: an universal democracy.
Your universal complicity of heresies. -. Teilhard de Chardin, Deutch catechism; new catechesis against Cardinal Ottaviani, opposition to Cardinal Wright. An abundance of heresies.
- SCHISM. Affective schism: vis-à-vis persons.
Effective schism: against the Church.
Absolute schism: the despise of God.
You do not discern God’s Church.
You do not discern the catholic priesthood.
You do not discern the body of Christ.
- SCANDAL. Ecclesiastical institutions in ruins. The religion fades out. The christendom betrayed: neutralism, anti-colonialism, pro-communism
Satan’s reign. Fatima desecrated.
The two Books of accusation for heresy against Paul VI (of 102 large pages) and against the author of the Catechism of John Paul II, originals in French, with English and Italian translations, can be found on sale at:

We are an educational, News-informational and research Web Site dedicated to providing such as befits those who seek things pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith and life.
A few have sent us inquiries as to why we post information and/or articles relating to what might be considered as political and sometimes from other Protestants . And the reply is much the same as it states on the entry page.... We Are:
A Non-Profit Religious Hosting Service
an Educational, News, Informational and Research Web Site dedicated to providing such as befits those who seek things pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith and life for various
Traditional Orthodox Jurisdictions
While the answer and question above is not sufficient for some to understand, we take the view (which we believe is ORTHODOX) that all things pertinent to life and living affects, and has an effect, upon not just our belief (Orthodox), but (for many) the way in which we act in accordance with our belief, our very faith.
Because this is a highly Protestant Country in which we live, having an effect upon the laws of the land, we should know something of what is on-going and where efforts by those denominations may affect and have a intrinsic effect on our very laws, for such does have an effect upon our daily lives as Orthodox Catholic Christians.
If one is not cognizant of the real events happening both locally and in the world, although many are removed from the world... one will not know what to expect or what to do, or how one can or cannot act which might betray one's faith and accrue the wrath of civil authorities as laws change. Yet, we are also reminded that these things must happen and it was for that which there exists many early Christian Martyrs and Saints.
While we can remove ourselves from the world, we still live in it. And for the faithful, theirs is a struggle for knowledge and understanding. All things are pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith which is the very foundation of Christianity. As such, we can not abandon them and leave them blind to events and happenings.
What we post as related to those things similar to various articles which might have a political theme or non-Orthodox Catholic Christian content of sorts ... does not mean or imply that we are supportive of, for, or against something articulated in an article, so much as it is NEWS and our faithful should be made aware, for such may be the very thing that will impact their day-to-day life. It is for them, their free will... to judge the relevancy.
Remember, not all Protestants, especially hard core cultic groups such as "Charismatic" - "Evangelical" "Promise Keepers" "Church of Christ" "Methodism" "Pentecostals" "Jehovah's Witnesses" "Mormons" and other people are not so generous in their viciousness toward anyone and anything that appears "Catholic" whether of the Roman or Orthodox jurisdictions, for they do not know or want to learn that which makes them "different" in their walk and talk as being far from the roots of Christianity.
Remember, it is the Roman jurisdiction of the Catholic Church which has more outwardly shown that it can be one of the most vicious toward those who are not Roman but are very much "Catholic" - for the sun and moon does not rise and set on the Vatican (Latin or Roman) jurisdiction as to who is or is not "Catholic" for the Roman jurisdiction split (schismed) from the roots of "Catholicism" which is founded in what is termed and called today as "Orthodoxy".

“I prefer a defeat accompanied by humility to a victory accompanied by pride.”
Yes, our Metropolitan Archbishop, +Joseph Thaddeus, SSJt., Ph.D. strongly defends the Seals of the Confessional for such leads to true Repentance in thought, word and deed whereby the penitent is required to make amends, where possible, to seek forgiveness of those harmed by his actions whether real or imagined, and to give his forgiveness to those who have harmed him before taking the Holy Body and Blood in the Eucharist, Jesus the Christ. The reality of this understanding is bound up in and with the findings for which cause he, himself, had been character assassinated by his detractors who claim the courts prevented him from breaking the Seals of the Confessional which is not the truth at all....

The workings of Holy Spirit will not be daunted by those who attempt to cause disruption! It is for these and other reasons that you are urged to read what true repentance and forgiveness means for real "Christians".
"It would be better to have ten (10) true repentant X-felons who ask for and give true forgiveness than it would be to have one (1) non-x-felon or common person whose self-righteousness exceeds even the Pharisees, Sadducees, the gossip mongers, slanderers and un-repentant; for the repentant x-felon understands the true meaning of the Church's purpose as being the spiritual hospital." (siq) +Joseph Thaddeus, OSB, SSJt., Ph.D., Metropolitan Archbishop, Archabbot, Primate
Yes... "Prejudice Makes Prisoners of the Hated and the Hater..." (1992-Fr. Alan Stanford)
One can ask, "What part of 'Prejudice' and 'hate' do you not understand? Are you a complacent person? In light of the saying, examine yourself! You may be surprised if you are honest with yourself for your soul may convict you before Jesus Christ convicts you in the times to come!
"When tested by some trial you should try to find out not why or through whom it came, but only how to endure it gratefully, without distress or rancor."
St. Mark the Ascetic.
"Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit." Psalms 32:1-2
