Based upon standard Roman Catholic Theology, particularly that which pertains to the establishment and authority of Christ's own Church, as documented in the standard Theological handbook, Dogmatic Theology, Volume 2, Christ's Church, by Msgr. G. Van Noort Part 12: Pages 33 - 35, Christ established sacred authority in His Church, same proven. Authority was given to the college (or body) of bishops, not as something given to them as individuals without accountability to each other, but in that they function as a unit. (Contemporary application: Our traditional bishops do not and can not function independently of each other but are obliged by the nature of their delegation by Christ and His Church to function together. Any failure of any one of them to function well and voluntarily with any others and coordinate all actions of mutual concern is a personal moral fault for which he will answer most severely in the Judgment.) This sacred power was conferred on the college (or body) of bishops directly by Christ, which is a dogma of the Faith. (Griff comments: The Bible also states that not many should teach since those who teach face the heavier judgment, in that those who teach (that is, possess and official capacity to teach as priests and bishops) will be judged not only for their own actions but those of their flocks.) Numerous scriptural mentions of their authority and place are given.
