I'm going to be blunt even though I have no authority to: do your research. The Church ALWAYS taught thats its teachings on faith and morals are infallible. If the only dogmas the Church ever taught to be absolute were the Immaculate Conception and the Assumption, both very important dogmas as they show Mary's special place in Gods Heart and Her role in salvation (something which is shamefully forgotten by many Catholics who are too lazy to pick up a Rosary, and which sadly, I am guilty of too
), why only those two? Aren't the teachings of the Eucharist both infallible? Isn't Vatican Council I infallible? You know when Pius IX defined
as a matter of fact in Vatican Council, Sess. IV , Const. de Ecclesiâ Christi, Chapter iv:
that it is a dogma Divinely
revealed that the Roman pontiff when he speaks ex cathedra
, that is when in discharge of the office of pastor and doctor of all Christians, by virtue of his supreme Apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine regarding faith or morals to be held by the universal Church, by the Divine assistance promised to him in Blessed Peter, is possessed of that infallibility with which the Divine Redeemer willed that his Church should be endowed in defining doctrine regarding faith or morals, and that therefore such definitions of the Roman pontiff are of themselves and not from the consent of the Church irreformable.
So then, should anyone, which God forbid, have the temerity to reject this definition of ours: let him be anathema
. (see Denziger §1839).
And, by Pope Boniface VIII: "We declare, say, define and proclaim to every human creature that they by necessity for salvation are entirely subject to the Roman Pontiff."
-Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctam, November 18, 1302, ex cathedra.
Now catholicgamer, are you going to accept the teachings of Jesus Christ God as handed down by Him to the apostles and to the Church or are you going, to put it bluntly and without meaning to sound mean, make up things which are not true just so you will not offend atheists because they
think they are right in not thinking the Catholic faith to be infallible, despite their interpretations of infallibility being wrong?
