Does Pope think he is infallible?

INFALLIBILITY? Officially, it is an article of Catholic faith that the Pope is infallible. My personal faith tells me there are many problems with this.

My reading of Church history tells me that Roman 'infallibility' has caused untold dissension and faction-fighting among Christians. Our petty quarrels have scandalised the human race for nearly 2,000 years.

Surely Christ wants us all to be Christians of one, not just a chosen few self-righteous know-it-alls.What does Pope Francis think of papal infallibility?
