The Pope is the Bishop of Rome, thus the worldwide leader of the Catholic church.
Answer . \nThe definition of Pope is "the head of the Catholic Church." It comes from the Greek word "papas", meaning "bishop, patriarch, or father".
The current pope is Jorge Mario Bergoglio. He took the name Pope Francis I . Pope Francis was 76 years old when he was elected to the head of the church on March 13, 2013. He was the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina before stepping down because of his age. Pope Francis is the first non-Europ…ean Pope of the modern era, and the first South American Pope ever. He is also the third straight non-Italian Pope. Pope Francis is considered to be a follower of the church's most conservative wing. Pope Francis takes over for Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI , who retired from his position due to health reasons on February 28, 2013, after about 8 years as Pope. The pope, in general, is the spiritual head of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide. Francis I is the latest Pope to hold that position, which the Roman Catholic Church can trace back through history, through the early Church until the first 'pope' (although that particular title wasn't used at that time), Peter the Apostle. The Pope's residence is in a tiny independent country (the smallest in the world) within the borders of Rome, Italy, called the Vatican City, which also houses the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide.

Any institution requires a leader or visible hierarchy in order to function. This is natural to human nature and is thus present in human society and social groups. When Christ set up His Church He thus naturally gave it a visible hierarchy. The pope functions not only as a leader and thus rallyin…g point for an institution but also ensures the visible continuity between the Church and Its founder, thus maintaining the Church's authenticity of origin as well as maintaining its authority and jurisdiction in Christian matters. In addition to this, the pope has several offices proper to a leader. The pope is the top administrator of the Catholic Church and thus appoints and ratifies managerial positions (bishops, cardinals, manages rules and discipline, guards and safe checks beliefs and rulings, acts as the final court of appeal, calls councils, and leads the Catholic Faithful and guides the Church in the times It finds itself. In addition to this, Catholics believe the pope is further endowed with supernatural powers, specifically that of being able to definitively discern which beliefs are truly part of the deposit of the Catholic Faith if a question arises concerning them. The pope can thus, when acting in virtue of his papal office, and with the intent of addressing the universal Church on a point of doctrine concerning Faith and Morals, pronounce infallibly upon a doctrine of the Faith. This keeps the deposit of the Faith intact and preserves the Church from falling into heresy and helps avoid the formation of a dispute to the point it causes splinter groups within the Church that will eventually become heresies.

No.. The word "pope" comes from the Greek word for father, "pappas", a title of bishops.
The Pope is actually the Bishop of Rome. Bishop is the highest order in the Catholic Church. The word Pope comes from the Italian word for father. The Bishop of Rome was and is called father because he is also a priest. When Italians call out "FATHER" in their language, it comes out as "PAPA". To th…e English ear it it sounded like Pap, because of the accent being on the first syllable. It should not be to much of a stretch for you to understand how pap become Pope after hundreds of years.

We really do not know why Jesus Christ chose Simon whom He renamed the Rock (Peter) to be the first leader of His Church on Earth.. John 21:15-17 states:. When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, …you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs.". He then said to him a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep.". He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time, "Do you love me?" and he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." (Jesus) said to him, "Feed my sheep.. Matthew 16:17-19 states:. Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.". The Catholic Church believes the Lord made Simon alone, whom he named Peter, the "rock" of his Church. He gave him the keys of his Church and instituted him shepherd of the whole flock.. The Pope is the senior pastor of 1.1 billion Catholic Christians, the direct successor of Simon Peter.. The Pope's main roles include teaching, sanctifying, and governing.. For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 880-882. ( Full Answer )

English speakers were egotistic and wanted the first person pronoun (I) to look more important than the rest (he, she, they, we, etc.). .

So, to make the letter… stand out more as a separate word, the letter was capitalized. ( Full Answer )

The Quick Answer: There were no Popes before Christ, because The Office of Peter (the Papacy) was established by Christ while He was still alive. The Real Question: Who was the first Pope? The Answer: Peter, the Apostle of Jesus! Check out Matthew 16: 13-20, Cor. 3:11, Eph. 2:20, 1 Pet. 2:5-6, R…ev. 21:14. Improvement: From November 1268 to September 1, 1271, there was no pope as the conclave, considered the first conclave, was unable to elect a new pontiff. Therefore, the Church went nearly three years without a pope. During this period three of the twenty cardinal-electors died and one resigned. Pope Gregory X was eventually elected pope after impatient followers of the election reduced the rations to the cardinals to bread and water and removed the roof of the chapel where they were meeting, exposing the electors to the winter weather.

I presume you are asking if the word 'was' is capitalised when it appears in a title. Yes, it is, since it is a verb. For example: 'I Was a Teenage Bride.' Obviously, if the word 'was' is the first word in a sentence, it is capitalised. For example: 'Was there anybody there when you arrived at th…e house?' ( Full Answer )
' Was' is a verb. If it is located in a sentence, don't capitalize it unless it starts the sentence. If it in the First or Last word of a movie, book, etc., you would capitalize it. But sometimes it is the middle word of a title like ' Life was my Victory ' so you wouldn't capitalize it. Please ad…d more to what I have just said if you want to but don't delete my answer xD. Another answer In title case, verbs always take an initial capital, regardless of their length and their position in the sentence. Therefore 'was' is always capitalised in title case: Life Was My Victory . The previous contributor seems to have assumed that because 'was' is a short verb, it is subject to the same considerations as (for example) conjunctions, but that is not so. ( Full Answer )

In English, words are capitalized only when they are "proper" nouns, or if they begin a sentence. A proper noun is the name of a person or place, or a title of something. Examples: Barack Obama (person's name) President Obama (person's title) Washington (place name) All The President's M…en (movie title) A bit tricky: some nouns are capitalized when used as a title, and otherwise not, for example: Yesterday, my father told me to be quiet. (father is a relationship, not a title). Yesterday, Father said to be quiet. (Now it's used as his name or title, so it's capitalized.) Not all languages have the same rules about capitalization, so be sure to check when changing languages. ( Full Answer )
The pope is the Vicar of Christ. He occupies the seat of Peter, and is essentially Christ's chief apostle and leader of His Church here on Earth. The pope is also the Bishop of Rome. The pope's responsibility is to lead the church. As you can imagine, the responsibilities are incredible and divers…se. Most popes will spend their time focusing on issues or topics that are of interest to the Church needs at that time. The pope essentially listens to the cultural pulse and speaks out in the name of Christ on issues. For example, Pope John Paul II spent much of his early years focusing on building up the resistance in Eastern Europe to Communism which eventually caused the collapse of the Berlin Wall.

Yes, if you just press shift on the keyboard and the letter, then it should become a capital. If the word 'in' starts a sentence, then it should have a capital letter, but otherwise it should be in the lower case. "In" is conventionally lower case in titles, too, unless the title starts with "in"… (just as it would be capitalised at the beginning of a sentence). "The Catcher in the Rye", or "In the Name of the Law" are examples of correct usage in book or movie titles. ( Full Answer )
