Papal Coat

The Papal Menu

    As we have indicated, the Church was without a pope for 40 years from Oct. 9, 1958 until Oct. 24, 1998 with the election of Pope Pius XIII to the chair of Peter.  In this page of the True Catholic web site, we present articles on various topics concerning the papal situation, as well as reasons why and how a papal election could be conducted.  With God's help the remnant Church validly elected a true pope for God's one and only Church.

The Papal Situation  The question has been posed ... "Do we have a pope?"  The answer in a nutshell is that the last true pope was Pope Pius XII who died on Oct. 9, 1958. The 5 men following him, each claiming to sit on the Chair of St. Peter were and are impostors.  Great Schism article shows why. 

The Great Schism of the West (1378-1417) was resolved at the Council of Constance.  With the help of God, that which seemed to be an impossible situation was finally settled.  We should thank God for knowing this event in history and how it was solved to the glory of God and the salvation of souls. 

New Conclave passing of Pius XIII (1998-2009) A new council is in progress and will take some time due to strong persecutions against the true Catholic Church and true Holy Mysteries of Pope Pius XIII.
