Præfektura apostolica Poli arcici- The Polar Prefecture


Norway was partly converted to Christianity already in the 11th century, although the heathen believes continued to stay strong in certain regions of the country. In the 17th Century the nation was turned over to protestantism by force after the so called "Reformation" and a Lutheran "State Church" was imposed on everybody. For more than 2 Centuries it was forbidden to practise Catholicism in the region. But in 1855 the See of Rome was able to start a new mission in Norway and the Polar Region; the "Præfektura apostolica Poli arcici." And even though most Catholics abandoned their Catholic Traditions in order to be accepted by the Second Vatican Council sect, there are still Catholics left.. People who wish to stay faithful to the Teachings of the ancient, never changing Catholic Church, with it's Papacy, Doctrines and Traditions. People who reject heresies like modernism, freemasonry, false ecumenism and "salvation" in foreign religions. Regular Catholics in other words.

Some thoughts around the expression "sedevacantist"

I frequently use the term sedevacantist in my blog, and sometimes I wonder if I should use it at all.
I am a traditional Catholic, and I never want to be anything but Catholic. I live my life trying to adhere to the Catholic Faith in every way, agreeing with Her doctrines, Her Traditions and Her authority, because I truly believe in the office of the papacy and would gladly submit to a true pope. And then I believe that it is likely that the Church is in a state of sedevacantism, meaning that there is no pope at the moment. For all I know, there might be a true pope out there, maybe in hiding or in exile somewhere. But to my knowledge there is not. And so I have to assume that we have sedevacancy. So do not let terminology confuse you and make you think that this is not a Traditional Catholic website. And if you find all of this very confusing, I strongly recommend that you look into the precept of ipso facto, in simple terms an automatic excommunication. If you understand what that is, you have come a long way. And learn to recognize modernism, which is a world view condemned by the Catholic Church. Read the Catholic Oath against Modernism, that all Catholic Priests are supposed to confess and believe. If you are still under the heretical impression that truth evolves, than you will never se the problem with a so called pope going against, and redefining what previous popes have spoken ex cathedra. This is basic Catholic teaching. Revealed truth never changes. The doctrines of the Catholic Faith are of Divine origin and this is why they always stay the same. It is not the same thing when a pope goes out and changes a Catholic custom. He may for example lighten the burden of fasting during Lent under a time of famine. But He can never change a revealed doctrine by for example adding a fourth person to the Holy Trinity. Or by saying that we now no longer find salvation only within the Catholic Church, but can also be saved through ignorance or in any religion. That would be public, manifest heresy. Learn to recognize true Catholicism from modernism and other heresies. Learn the Faith.
