Locating documents of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Pope and the Magisterium

Example of a Canon:

Canon 227: Lay Christian faithful have the right to have recognized that freedom in the affairs of the earthly city which brings to all citizens when they exercise such freedom, however, they are to take care that their actions are imbued with the spirit of the gospel and take into account the doctrine set forth by the magisterium of the Church; but they are to avoid proposing their own opinion as the teaching of the Church in questions which are open to various opinions.
