Do you honestly give your own opinion, or the opinion of your Church?

The Catholic Answers

In matters of history, I state historical facts, and since they are facts they ere my own belief. On questions of faith and morals, if the Church has given any definite teaching I give that teaching, and since it is true, it is of course my own conviction. Where the Church has given no definite teaching but leaves it a free matter, I give what I consider the most probable explanation.
