SEDE VACANTE

Discussion started on Region 12

This means "empty chair" in Latin. It is a phrase usually applied to the Chair of Peter, for the interregnum between the death of a Pope and the election of a new one.

FYI, the Region 12 Rep will never be confused with the Pope, no matter how impressive he/she may be.

I have never been referred to as an "Empty Chair"; however, I have sometimes been referred to as an "Empty Suit".

(I'm not exactly sure what that means, but I'm not going to ask)(LOL)
