It is clear that the final betrayers of Our Lord Jesus Christ in terms of the assault on the true faith handed down from the Apostles to generation after generation in Catholic traditionalism circles are the staged debaters of sedevacantism versus non-sedevacantism. They both agree on one absolutely NON-CATHOLIC belief, which is totally false and was proposed first by John the Faster, a Patriarch of Constantinople. This absolutely false idea was that there was one earthly head over the Church founded by Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the only Head, no one else is. Nor could anyone else be. Pope St. Gregory the Great refuted this pernicious error instigated by Satan when he called on John to repent and Gregory noted that there was no one earthly head over the Church and that the idea of claiming this was nothing other than the Precursor (the False Prophet) to the Antichrist. Gregory also stated unequivocally that there were three Sees of Peter at that time each co-equal: Antioch, Rome and Alexandria. Gregory stated unequivocally that there was no Bishop who had authority over all the other Bishops throughout all of the Catholic Church. These aren't Protestant "ideas," they are Catholic statements of truth. Roman Primacy, all three versions: Rome (Rome I), Constantinople (Rome II) and Moscow (some say Rome III), is a heresy that only divides the Church and does the will of Satan.

5 ¶ And Jesus answering, began to say to them: Take heed lest any man deceive you. (DRV)
3 ¶ Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (DRV)
The diabolically absurd idea of ecumenism began in the late 6th (500’s) A.D. century in the Eastern Church. Later, the Pope got jealous and decided he wanted it for himself. In all cases it is the example of men bowing before the temptation of Satan. The devil even tried to tempt Jesus Christ with this but Jesus totally rejected this temptation of the devil – see Gospel of St. Luke Chapter 4. It was in the East as well that the pagan worship of images was promoted throughout the centuries, while in the West the use of images to teach but not to worship them was the tradition. It was also in the East that the ecumenical idea of a universal bishop was thought up.
See the letters (epistles) of Pope St. Gregory the Great (died 604 A.D.) concerning the “proud and pestiferous title of ecumenical” and “images” and the Patriarch of Constantinople calling himself the universal (ecumenical) Bishop.
Be it known then to your Fraternity that John, formerly bishop of the city of Constantinople, against God, against the peace of the Church, to the contempt and injury of all priests, exceeded the bounds of modesty and of his own measure, and unlawfully usurped in synod the proud and pestiferous title of ecumenical, that is to say, universal. When our predecessor Pelagius of blessed memory became aware of this, he annulled by a fully valid censure all the proceedings of that same synod,
Furthermore we notify to you that it has come to our ears that your Fraternity, seeing certain adorers of images, broke and threw down these same images in Churches. And we commend you indeed for your zeal against anything made with hands being an object of adoration; but we signify to you that you ought not to have broken these images. For pictorial representation is made use of in Churches for this reason; that such as are ignorant of letters may at least read by looking at the walls what they cannot read in books. Your Fraternity therefore should have both preserved the images and prohibited the people from adoration of them, to the end that both those who are ignorant of letters might have wherewith to gather a knowledge of the history, and that the people might by no means sin by adoration of a pictorial representation.
Gregory to Cyriacus, &c.
Observing diligently, most dear brother, how great is the virtue of peace from the Lord’s voice, which says, My peace I give unto you (John. xiv. 27), it becomes us so to abide in the love thereof as in no wise to give place to discord. But, since we cannot otherwise live in its root except by retaining in mind and in deed the humility which the very author of peace has taught, we entreat you with befitting charity, that, treading down with the foot of your heart the profane elation which is always hostile to souls, you make haste to remove from the midst of the Church the offence of a perverse and proud title (ecumenical [universal] Bishop – see above EPISTLE LXVIII), lest you should possibly be found divided from the society of our peace. But let there be in us one spirit, one mind, one charity, one bond in Christ, who has willed us to be his members. For let your Holiness consider how hard it is, how indecent, how cruel, how alien from the aim of a priest, not to have that peace which you preach to others, and so abstain from offending your brethren out of pride. But study this rather, how you may prostrate with the sword of humility the author of vain and profitless elation, to the end that in such a victory the grace of the Holy Spirit may claim you as a habitation for Himself, so that what is written may be plainly fulfilled in you; the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are (2 Cor. 6:16)
We commend to you in all things the bearer of these presents, our most beloved common son, the deacon Boniface, that in whatsoever may be needful he may find, as is becoming, the succour of your Holiness.
The Signs of the Last Day
Mark 13:21. “And then, if anyone say to you,
‘Behold, here is the Christ; behold, there he is,’ do not believe it. 22. For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will show signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 23. Be on your guard therefore; behold, I have told you all things beforehand.
24. “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give her light, 25. and the stars of heaven will be falling, and the powers that are in heaven will be shaken. 26. And then they will see the Son of Man coming upon clouds with great power and majesty. 27. And then he will send forth his angels, and will gather his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost parts of the earth to the uttermost parts of heaven.
2 Thessalonians 1:6. Indeed it is just on the part of God to repay with affliction, those who afflict you, 7. and to give you who are afflicted rest with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus who will come from heaven with the angels of his power, 8. in flaming fire to inflict punishment on those who do not know God, and who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9. These will be punished with eternal ruin, away from the face of the Lord and the glory of his power,
In his book "The Antichrist," Fr. Miceli quoted Pope St. Gregory the Great as absolutely condemning the idea of one earthly head, one Bishop, over all others of Our Lord Jesus Christ's Church; that instead one earthly head (Universal Bishop - i.e modern "Pope") was the Precursor (the False Prophet) of the Antichrist; and emphatically emphasized this as still holding true. Of course it does still hold true and always will. For his telling the truth, Father Vincent Miceli was eliminated:

Vincent P. Miceli S.J. (1915 - June 2, 1991) a Catholic priest, theologian, and philosopher, was born in New York City, USA, in 1915. He was martyred by the Vatican assassins by a rigged car accident for Father Micelli's exposing them and the Apostate Vatican (home of the False Prophet) and Antichrist Israel (home of the Antichrist) and the coming of the Antichrist (the son of Perdition, ad Dajjall) for what they are.
