    • 5.9: The conciliar and pontifical nature of the Church
      • The church is conciliar because: council are sometimes held to make important decisions and update Church teachings
        • these help the Pope to discuss difficult issues with other members of the Church
        • councils influence the teachings and direction of the Church
        • councils express the voice of the whole Church
      • the Church is pontifical because: the Pope is the leader of the Church and has the highest authority
        • this authority has been passed down over generations from Peter
        • this makes the Pope the representative of Christ on earth
        • and the decisions of a council have no authority until they're approved by the Pope.
