Ratzinger on subjective moral judgements

"It is strange that some theologians have difficulty accepting the precise and limited doctrine of papal infallibility, but see no problem in granting de facto infallibility to everyone who has a conscience."

Great quote! Could you give a citation please.

The quote reminds me of what Bishop Sheen once said: Modern people don't believe that Mary was immaculately conceived but believe that they themselves were.

It's from his book "On Conscience". I forgot that one from Bishop Sheen; very good!
