Catholic...what does it mean?

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Maybe this will tell me.

..."One can see the sad state of "Christendom" today by comparing it to Jesus’ words about "the Church." If a Methodist offends a Baptist, or a Presbyterian offends a Pentecostal, which church do they take it to for adjudication? This alone demonstrates the problem when 30,000+ denominations exist outside the bounds of the "one holy, catholic, and apostolic Church." Jesus intended there to be one universal, authoritative, visible—and, yes, Catholic—Church to represent him on earth until his return." Steve Ray

(See my post: Beautiful Song, Beautiful One.)

How far we still are from Jesus' desire for us.
Lord have mercy.
Christ have mercy.
Lord have mercy.
