A Pope.

Wait a minute, that could be ambiguous. I don't mean Alexander Pope, the famous Roman Catholic poet, I mean one of the inhabitants of the (so-called) chair of St Peter. Beyond that, I'm not sure.

A false prophet.

It was a statement made in a papal bull against a King who challenged Rome over tax money, Benedict, Innocent, Boniface ?

I'm guessing that's a collegial "we" and not a plural of majesty "we". Vatican 1.

It's the Papal Encyclical Unam Sanctum.

Opps, wrong #. I ment Pope Benedict XVI, Cardinal Ratzinger

An antichrist, no doubt.

I think it was Boniface VIII.

Cardinal Newman, a convert, said, We must follow our consience even if it is ill informed. This suggests that you do not need to be a Catholic to be saved. See philosophy and religion site

The current Pope.

Definitely the spirit of "Unum Sanctum", but I'm not sure if it's from that or not. Maybe the current Pope's new "Love in Truth" statement?

I'm going to guess John Paul II.

I do not think it was from the Council of Trent. It came out a later Vatican Council but I am not sure which one.
