The Importance of the Papacy

“I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”(Mt16:19)

Defending the Primacy of the Pope

The First Vatican Council defined that the upope is preserved from error when teaching on matters of faith. The Second Vatican Council addressed how the bishops rule and bring unity to the the church.

Primacy of Peter

St. Paul acknowledges that Peter is the first to have received an appearance from the Risen Lord: “he appeared to Cephas (Peter), then to the Twelve” (1 Cor 15:5).

First vs. Second Vatican Council

A big difference was that the Second Vatican Council began its teaching first on the ministry of the bishops and then addressed the pope in relationship to the bishops.
