Clerical Conversations, Episode 1: “The Nine,” 30 Years On…

This month, we introduce a new show to the Restoration Radio Network: Clerical Conversations on the Crisis. This show will be devoted to various topics that deal with not only the issues faced by both clergy and laity during this crisis of the modernist heresy, but also timely topics that need clerical clarity to inform and instruct Catholics.

(L to R) Father Donald Sanborn, His Grace, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, Father Anthony Cekada. Circa 1982.

The inaugural broadcast of this new show will discuss the story of the "Nine," a group of priests of the Society of St. Pius X that were expelled from the priestly fraternity in 1983.  Time has obscured the reasons for their expulsion, which contrary to popular explanations, had nothing to do with sedevacantism.

The reasons had everything to do with the internal policies of the Society and their failure (then, as now) to have a coherent and consistent approach to Vatican II, the new Sacraments, the new Mass, and the Pope and Magisterium.

Our guests for this show include His Excellency, Bishop Daniel Dolan, His Excellency, Bishop Donald Sanborn, as well as Father Anthony Cekada.  Both then-Fathers Dolan and Cekada were present at the decisive meeting with Archbishop Lefebvre when these issues came to a head. You won't want to miss the epic story of "the meatloaf dinner."

Join us to hear this story, and allow yourself to be informed by the actual historical events that led up to "The Nine" saying goodbye to the Society of St. Pius X.
