The Papacy

The excitement and hope surrounding the election of Pope Francis make this an especially good time to renew our understanding of the papacy itself.  One resource for doing so is this book, Pope or Church?  It addresses many of the errors, which one reads almost everywhere as people speculate about where Pope Francis is going to "take the Church," concerning the Ordinary and Universal Magisterium of the Church. It's good to recall that Magisterium is a neuter noun.
