" There is a story of some Bishop or important person who got his way in Rome rather unexpectedly over an appeal, and when asked by his friends how he did it, replied, Fallendo Infallibilem".

RAK, 1927.

Is this a well-known anecdote?

It rather reminds of that comment about the late Dr Jenkins: 'David, by divine inadvertence, Bishop of Durham'
