A modern dictionary of Catholic terms, both common and obscure. Find accurate definitions of words and phrases.
A term meaning "of Faith," used to identify those doctrines of the Church which are infallibly true. Their infallible certitude derives ultimately from divine revelation, but proximately from the fact that they have either been solemnly defined by the Church's magisterium or have been taught by her ordinary universal teaching authority as binding on the consciences of all the faithful.
