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.


  1. Great post!! Write a new article it's been a few months.

  2. How do you feel about the Pius XII changes from 1951,1955,1957,1958? We are blessed to have a sedevacantist chapel 35 minutes from home.Our priest observes everything pre-1950.Just curious how you feel,I am not going to argue.

  3. At the moment I am very sceptical abot Pius XII. To learn for example how he gave out false birth certificates to Jews during WWII was just shocking. It has given unbaptized people entry into the Church and I can't see how it can be justified.
    His reforms seem to be a "useful" entry for VaticanII, so I find it all problematic. But I have not fully rejected them because I am still not sure if Pius XII was an anti-pope or not. We don't have a priest or the Holy Mass available to us, but I would like to have more clearity about the issue of course. I am praying about it. How do you look at it?

    1. I would suggest that he was an authentic, but incompetent, Pope. Unlike Ratzinger or Wojtila, at least his magisterium was True and his writings reinforced authentic Catholic teachings. He was gun-shy when it came to disciplining heretics and upstarts.

    2. He promoted Roncalli and Montini.He violated Council of Trent Session 7 Canon 13 multiple times starting in 1945 & 1951.
      In fact he promoted Montini to the same post that Pius XI held when he was elected Pope in 1922.He knew these men to be Ecumenist's and promoted them to very high positions and violated sacred tradition many times.
      He (Pius XII) will be remembered as the first modern pope that opened the church to constant change and havoc.

    3. Obedience is a moral virtue. Faith, Hope and Charity are theological virtues and hence of a higher order.
      St. Thomas : “In the time of necessity there is no law”.
      The deposit of faith (Tradition) is the primary rule;the teaching of the bishops is the secondary rule. If the secondary rule deviates from the primary rule, the secondary rule must not be followed.
      And if the secondary rule obscures the primary rule through ambiguous and/or contradictory teachings, prudence dictates that the faithful look to the past, when the secondary rule taught the primary rule with clarity.

  4. Personally I hold the post 1950 changes as catastrophic.We are blessed to have traditional chapel 30 mins from home.Our priest observes everything pre-1950,holy week,after midnight fast,and encourages all to do the same.I do know Pius XII promoted Paul VI & John XXIII during his papacy.Tradition in has many detailed stories about the 1950's changes.Pius XII was not a traditional solid catholic.I also suggest listening to Gregory hesse talk about Pius XII.If you want I will send video link.

    1. I would love to hear that radio link.

    2. "Fr.Hesse on the papacy and crisis in the church"

  5. Fr. Hesse on the Papacy & the Crisis in the Church:
    Be forewarned,Gregory Hesse,while being very intelligent & educated,was an invalid "priest" and held the "Recognize & Resist" position.
    However,in this presentation,he is 100% correct about Pius XII & the evil destruction done to holy week circa 1955.
    If link don't work go on YouTube and type in search bar "Gregory Hesse destruction of the papacy"
    Pius XII,according to Session 7 canon 13 Council of Trent,lost his office in 1951 and most definitely in 1955.the easter vigil destruction in 1951 was optional for every parish but 1955 changes were mandatory.Pius XII was a destructive modern liberal pope.Our chapel ignores every change after 1950 including keeping the after midnight fast.

  6. I have now listened through the Hesse-lecture. Very interesting information about Bonini, Opus Dei and the examples given of changes in the oldest liturgical parts we have, the Good Friday ceremony, the permission given to the Chinese to use the vernacular, JPII's football team:) and his introduction of Psychology replacing theology by using expressions like "the consciense of the Church" etc. Thank you.
    And og course, his views on sedevacantism are terrible. He keeps contradicting himself too. To claim that to be sedevacantist you can not understand the distinction between formal and material heresy is just silly. To say that because of bad education JPII and others were just ignorant and we can not know their intention is absurd. These were not ignorant puppets. They were smart and evil. The formal heresies are everywhere, these people were manisfest heretics to the bone. And Hesser is a non-judgementalist who contradicts himself by exclaiming that it is obvious JPII was NEVER CATHOLIC. So according to Hesser, a non-catholic can become Pope? And he completely ignores the EX Cathedra doctrine. Why would the Church even have such a teaching, if it was never to be implied? Hesser is outrageous, and of course, you know this, but other readers may not!!

  7. And of course, I meant "Ipso facto" not "Ex Cathedra" in my comment above. I really need to get some sleep now..:)

    1. Hesse was very good at contradiction.
      His views on the new extremely doubtful post 1968 rite of 'holy orders' is borderline insanity.
      Long as we understand that he is very inconsistent and full of contradiction,his talks are informative.
      You're welcome glad you learned from his talk,just as I did years ago!
      Will say a prayer for you all at Holy Mass during Resurrection Holy Day of obligation.
      Someone uploaded a holy sacrifice of the Mass from 1986 at the Ave Maria Chapel in Long ISLAND NY.(Fr.Gommar DePauw is the celebrant he was one of the first to leave the novus ordo in the mid 1960's)It's free on YouTube.
