Letter from the Editor

Bishop Antonio de Castro-Mayer and Sedevacantism
by Mr. Arai Daniele
...Many times Msgr. Castro-Mayer said and wrote that envisaging the possibility of reading Vatican II in the light of Tradition would be a blatant contradiction. It would be like seeing a circle where there is a square.
