Question How can a human pope be infallible?


Pope of the Catholic ChurchAnswer We Catholics believe the pope speaks infallibly when he acts as the pastor and teacher of all Christians and when, with the help of divine assistance, he defines a matter of faith or morals to be held by the universal Church.  We believe the pope can exercise infallibility when he teaches, but only about faith and morals and only in union with the Church.
