The Angelus: Papacy and Sedevacantism

Why choose to address the question of the papacy in a Catholic magazine? Aren’t all readers sharing the same faith and accepting of the Pope's Authority?

Excerpt from the publisher:

This issue, therefore, aims firstly at extolling the supernatural privileges granted to the pilot who steers the helm of St. Peter’s boat. The Holy Father, for all his personal shortcomings, is Christ’s representative on earth and must be venerated as such. He holds the Fisherman’s ring, with power to open and close Heaven’s gates. In his truly magisterial statements, his sharp word divides between the marrow and the sinew; he defines truth and condemns fallacy. To the Church—arguably to the papacy itself—Christ bestowed the promises of indefectibility, that is to say, that the Church would last till the end time."
