Primacy of conscience and following the Pope
Others can answer better (and hopefully will - MM?), but remember that there are conditions to fulfill should the holy father want to teach us something ex cathedra. He can express private opinion, as can we all. It seems this Pope may wish to blur those lines, and chooses to make the attempt. In Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul was addressing to whole church on a matter of faith and morals, in line with the constant teaching of the church, and specifically (IIRC) invoking as infallible. If some of those qualifications are followed, but not all, it may seem that the holy father is invoking infallibility, but isn't. I've stayed largely away from AL, as it made my head hurt too much.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said Throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory. Amen.
