Day #37: Lumen Gentium 25

“Bishops, teaching in communion with the Roman Pontiff, are to be respected by all as witnesses to divine and Catholic truth. In matters of faith and morals, the bishops speak in the name of Christ and the faithful are to accept their teaching and adhere to it with a religious assent.”

A good reminder for all Catholics.

Today we have a lengthier article from the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, and it’s all about the bishops’ and pope’s preaching authority and papal infallibility.

Here are the Scripture citations:

164 Cf. Mt. 13:52.

165 Cf. 2 Tim. 4:1-4.

166 Cf. Lk. 22:32.

And the footnotes:
