The Church (Index Page for Dave Armstrong)

Reims Cathedral, France: 13th century
 

This testimony of the universal holy Christian Church, even if we had nothing else, would be a sufficient warrant for holding this article [on the sacrament] and refusing to suffer or listen to a sectary, for it is dangerous and fearful to hear or believe anything against the unanimous testimony, belief, and teaching of the universal holy Christian churches, unanimously held in all the world from the beginning until now over fifteen hundred years.
 
(Martin Luther, in the year 1532; from Protestant Luther biographer Roland H. Bainton, Studies on the Reformation [Boston: Beacon Press, 1963], p. 26; primary source: WA [Werke, Weimar edition in German], XXX, 552)

Dave,
I have a Catholic friend that is having doubts about the the Catholic doctrine of the Infallibility of the Pope and his universal authority. Do you have any discussions/debates that cover this issue?
Thanks,
