The Catholic Talk Show, YouTube

Believe it or not, the Pope is NOT perfect!

In a previous ChurchPOP article regarding papal infallibility, “Papal infallibility means the pope can be infallible when he teaches a certain way, not that he is always infallible in everything he teaches all the time. He is only infallible when he, in exercising his Petrine office, intentionally teaches something definitively for the whole Church. It’s rare for popes to invoke this authority.”
