Abstract: This brief note explains how an investigation into the recent Magisterium of the Church reveals that the Catholic Church possesses the fullness of the truth. The words of the Second Vatican Council "the very fullness of grace and truth entrusted to the Catholic Church" (Unitatis Redintegratio, 3) are repeated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the encyclical letter Ut unum sint and in the Instruction Dominus Iesus. Although the members of the Church, over the centuries, have often failed to bear witness to the fullness of the Truth possessed by the Church, this does not reduce in any way the objective reality of the possession of the fullness of the Truth by the Catholic Church.
