 Catholic Culture : Document Library : Guilty Only of Failure To Teach
Though Agatho asserted the orthodoxy of all his predecessors and the infallibility of the apostolic see, he explicitly left open the possibility that a pope is nonetheless liable to judgment should he "neglect to preach the truth" to the faithful.
Agatho thereby provided the tacit basis for the condemnation of Honorius on these grounds: that by neglecting to preach the truth, Honorius left the Lord's flock exposed to ravaging wolves, as indeed the monothelite Eastern Patriarchs were and under whom the faithful suffered for many years.
Likewise, Pope Leo II (682-683) faulted Honorius because he "did not endeavor to preserve" the faith and for having "permitted" it to be assaulted, but not for having either invented, taught, or adhered to the heretical doctrine (Paul Bottalla, S.J., Pope Honorius Before the Tribunal of Reason and History, 111-112).

 Catholic Apologetics International - Robert Sungenis
Pope Honorius and the Monothelites were speaking of two very different things when they embraced the concepts of “one will.” Honorius was simply reiterating Our Lord’s testimony concerning himself that “I always do the Father’s will,” whereas, the Monothelites were denying in Christ the existence of a fully human nature.
Larson: Pope Honorius was persuaded by Sergius (remember he was quite ignorant of this new heresy and the machinations of its proponents), therefore, to enjoin silence concerning either the existence or non-existence of either one or two “operations” in Christ.
It is this “silence” which Pope Agatho refers to in his Letter to the Emperor, and it is to Pope Honorius who enjoined this “silence” that Pope Agatho attributes the never-failing faith of Peter.

The epistle of Agatho is a worthy sequel of Leo’s Epistle to the Chalcedonian Council, and equally clear and precise in stating the orthodox view.
Agatho quotes the words of Christ to Peter, Luke 22:31, 32, in favor of papal infallibility, anticipating, as it were, the Vatican decision of 1870.
But while the council fully endorsed the dyotheletic view of Agatho, and clothed it with oecumenical authority, it had no idea of endorsing his claim to papal infallibility; on the contrary, it expressly condemned Pope Honorius I. as a Monotheletic heretic, together with Sergius, Cyrus, Pyrrhus, Paulus, Petrus, and Theodore of Pharan.

 Fallibility of Popes 2
Thus, the official writings of an early pope contradict the dogmatic teachings of an ecumenical council, and so, one of these two parts of the church that Rome claims to be infallible must be in error.
In 553 A.D., the Eastern emperor summoned the fifth ecumenical council primarily to determine the orthodoxy of the writings of Theodore of Mopsuestia, Theodoret of Cyrrhus, and Ibas of Edessa.
The second claim is that Pope Agatho, the current pope at that time, wrote a letter to the council that said that the Roman See has always kept the faith undefiled by heresy.
