The See of Peter...

The Petrine Church leadership “must be divine in its content to impress itself so strongly on the religious conscience of all informed and well-meaning persons; and it must be human and imperfect in its historical manifestation to permit a moral opposition and make room for doubt, struggle, temptation and all that constitutes the merit of free and truly human virute.”

Vladimir Soloviev, La Russie et l’Eglise universelle [Russia and the Universal Church] (Paris: Nouvelle Librairie Parisienne, 1889).
