Default On Infallibility

Ron,

The Pope is infallible when he meets certain requirements. Jesus is infallible all the time in all what He says and does because He is God.

Since the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Immaculate Conception and sinless all her life, can we say that she is also infallible ?

Aquinas says about Adam and Eve that, before the fall, they could not be mistaken in anything that they knew. So we can say the same about the unfallen Virgin Mary. She was never in error on any topic, because she had right reason and grace, without sin or concupiscence. So we could consider that to be a type of infallibility.

Also, all the angels and souls in Heaven are infallible, since they have the Beatific Vision of God who is truth.
