ABOUT

The magisterium of the Catholic Church is the church’s authority or office to give authentic interpretation of the Word of God, “whether in its written form or in the form of Tradition.”

The exercise of the Catholic Church’s magisterium is sometimes, but only rarely, expressed in the solemn form of an ex cathedra papal declaration, “when, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians, in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority, [the Bishop of Rome] defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church,” or of a similar declaration by an ecumenical council. Such solemn declarations of the church’s teaching involve the infallibility of the Church.
