Knowledge of what, dear fellow? Does a knowledge of computers make it easier to related to the people around you, of how much one owes to his ancestors. Why he is born and what is the significance of death? Even if he is Pascal, hr knows but a little of his world at 14.

The sacrament of matrimony is like the sacrament of ordination. A divorce ought to be as rare as a priest being laicized. Is it a coincidence that the decline in Catholic marriages began after Vatican II at the same time that many priests abandoned their offices? What an example for the laity, all those unfaithful priests.

You don’t get it. Papal Infallibility is like the sovereignty of a king. It resides in the office, not the man. That is the whole point of the papal schism of the late Middle ages. We ended up with two anti-popes, who had to resign because neither could command the allegiance of the whole Church.
