What Is Catholicism?


Catholicism is the faith, ritual, and morals of the Roman Catholic Church as a historical reality, revealed in Jesus Christ and destined to endure until the end of time. It comprehends all that the Church teaches must be believed and lived out in order to be saved and, beyond salvation, in order to be sanctified. This system of doctrine, cultus, and practice is called Catholic (universal) because it is intended for all mankind, for all time, contains all that is necessary, and is suitable in every circumstance of human life.

Modern Catholic Dictionary

The summary of the Catholic Faith is professed by the faithful in the Nicene creed during Sunday Masses before they partake of the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
