Dr. Jeff Mirus on Infallibility

An informative read. I heard a helpful comment about this recently by Catholic Answers podcast: when dad tells his kids to do something, he does not have to issue a threat each time. That doesn't mean that the kids don't need to obey him during those times, however.
Update: here's an interesting discussion of ancient beginnings of papal infallibility, although not yet defined in detail, in the Council of Chalcedon in the 5th Century. The statements from leaders of Eastern Orthodox are quite striking.
