The Infallibility Of The Church. Chapter 13: Modern Revelations

Popular Romanism is certainly not the same as the Romanism of the schools, I hold that it is the former which has the best right to be accounted the faith of the Church. Let popular belief come first, and scholastic definition and apology will come in its own good time afterwards. I have already remarked how seldom the infallible authority is exercised to guide men’s belief as long as it is doubtful but usually only comes in when all controversy is over, to ratify the result which public opinion had already arrived at.
