893. How is the extraordinary Magisterium exercised? (CCC 891)
The extraordinary Magisterium is exercised when a doctrine pertaining to Faith and morals is proclaimed as definitive and infallible:

2. by the pope and an Ecumenical Council with him.
The pope makes infallible pronouncements when he speaks “ex cáthedra” (Latin: from the throne), i.e. with the full weight of his office.
