From Robert Hugh Benson

Discussion of papal primacy and particularly infallibility from Robert Hugh Benson’s memoir of his conversion, Confessions of a Convert:

After my reception into the Church [a Catholic priest who had discouraged Benson’s conversion] wrote to me again, asking how I had surmounted the difficulty [about papal infallibility] which he had indicated. I answered by saying that I could not be deterred by such elaborate distinctions from uniting myself to what I was convinced was the divinely appointed centre of Unity and that I had simply accepted the Decree [of the First Vatican Council] in the same sense in which the Church herself had uttered and accepted it. (pg. 87)
