What is one model of the Catholic Church?
First of all, It's just the Catholic Church, not the Roman Catholic Church. Roman is an epithet first commonly used in England after the protestant revolt to describe the Catholic Church. It is rarely used by the Catholic Church. . Secondly, the Catholic Church has only one role: It is the Mystical Body of Christ, It lives with His Life, and does His Will- that is It's only role.

Actually there are over 20 different Catholic Churches that make up the worldwide Catholic Church. (THERE IS ONLY ONE CATHOLIC CHURCH HEADED BY THE POPE.)

No WAY!!! The Anglican church is probably one of the closER Protestant "branch religions" to the Catholic Church, but it is still a Protestant religion. The Anglican church is missing some of the MOST key factors that "make" the Catholic Church Catholic. So "no, they are most definitely NOT the same."
Roman Catholic Answer The Catholic Church remained the Catholic Church. It cannot "become" anything else, as Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to guide it until the end of time. It will remain His Body, it will remain One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. The Orthodox Church became schismatic (they are in schism from the Catholic Church).
The Catholic Church maintained the Hebrew Bible (in translation; not always accurate) and added to it the Christian Testament. They didn't adopt texts or precepts from Islam, because their Bible had been set in its permanent form long before the start of Islam.

As they are not part of the Catholic Church under the Pope, I do not know anymore about them.

Catholic Answer It depends on whom you are talking to. The Church has many names for various reasons, the Creed refers to her as "One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic". Nowhere does the Church refer to herself as "Roman" that is an appellation that has been attached since the protestant revolt. The Church has been called "Catholic" which means "universal" almost from the beginning. Holy Catholic Church is appropriate for most things.
