The first gift implies that the Pope cannot teach material heresy. The second gift implies that the Pope cannot commit apostasy, heresy, or schism. The signatories are rejecting this teaching of the First Vatican Council.

I thought these gifts apply only when speaking ex-cattedra - and that the Pope is only infallible in such instance - or this is something totally different? Thank
