Pope St. Victor I, Martyr: "I bore your name"

... O Lord of hosts.

-- Jeremiah 15:10, 16-21

The Pope, Bishop of Rome and Peter's successor "is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful." "For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered."

-- CCC 882
