re: The Bishops were wrong?
Question from anonymous on 09-07-2013:

The bishops were wrong but if the Pope spoke on the matter would that have been infallible?

Answer by Judie Brown on 09-23-2013:


If the Pope is speaking or giving an interview and is not presenting an official teaching document then what he says is his opinion.

Here is an article from Catholic Answers that explains what Papal infallibility is and is not: http://www.catholic.com/tracts/papal-infallibility
