Trad Controversies, Episode 8: Bishop Mendez, the SSPV, and the Rest of the Story


Bishop Donald Sanborn

In this episode of Trad Controversies, guest host Stephen Heiner interviews special guest Bishop Donald Sanborn, to discuss the topic of Bishop Mendez, the consecrator of Bishop Clarence Kelly.

Bishop Sanborn discusses his meetings with Bishop Mendez in 1978 and 1989, his initial and then later impressions, and then his reaction to the ordinations of 1990.

Bishop Sanborn also recounts his time in the SSPV, his relationship with Father Cekada and then-Father Dolan, and ultimately his reaction to the revelation of the consecration of Bishop Kelly, and the promotion of Bishop Mendez by the SSPV.

Finally, Bishop Sanborn reflects on possible future relations with the SSPV and what Catholics can take away from examining these sorts of conflicts in our day and age.
