Vatican I Expert Fr. Rippinger: "Proximate to Heresy... saying that the Pope is Infallible Regardless of Conditions... not, therefore, Excused"

Vatican I Expert Fr. Chad Rippinger, PhD, in his book "Magisterial Authority" wrote:

"[T]reat[ing] ALL papal statements as if they are infallible... is proximate to heresy because it rejects the precise formulation of the conditions of infallibility as laid out in by Vatican I... by essentially saying that the pope is infallible regardless of conditions."

"... Worse still, those who were to follow a pope who was in error in a non-infallible teaching which is taught contrary to something that is infallible is not, therefore, excused."
(Magisterial Authority, Pages 5-14)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
