What comes to your mind whenever you hear the word Catholic church?
Most of you would argue that there is only one Catholic church in the world, but let’s start from the definition of the word “Catholic”
According to Wikipedia The word Catholic comes from the Greek phrase καθόλου (katholou), meaning” on the whole”, “according to the whole” or “in general”. From the definition of Catholic, I begin to wonder why we usually believe that there is only one catholic church.
