What is a Catholic?

A Catholic is a follower of Christ who practices the following to the best of their ability:

1. Humility or faith and trust in God which is the foundation of all true relationships with God.

2. Communication with God through prayer and self-denial.

3. Observance of The Law which is written in Scripture and in the hearts of those who love the truth.

4. The offering of sacrifice to God and partaking of the sacrificial offering (various animal and bird offerings in the Old Testament, the Lamb of God in the New Testament, the sacrifice of the Mass in the Catholic Church).


A Catholic is a member of the Catholic Church, the original Christian Church, and the only one founded by Jesus Christ.


Catholic means uninversal. Jesus came to take away the sins of the world. God's will is that his message be spread to everyone.

A Catholic is someone who has faith and believes in Jesus Christ. We are followers of him. We believe that he died for us. He was our savior. I hope this helped you and that it intrigues you to learn more about Catholics.


A Catholic is one who accepts all the teachings on Faith & Morals contained in The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) (available in most bookstores) which sets forth, in detail, the meaning, scripture, historical record that produced/supports The Nicene Creed, (which most Christians accept), the 10 Commandments and other items as Truth.
