Roman Catholicism

A branch of Catholicism, Roman Catholicism is one of the largest Christian denominations in the world. It is based on the teachings and traditions of Jesus Christ, as conveyed through the Bible and Sacred Tradition. Central to Roman Catholic belief is the recognition of the Pope, the Bishop of Rome, as the spiritual leader of the Church, and the belief in the seven sacraments, including the Eucharist. Catholics emphasise the importance of the Virgin Mary, the communion of saints, and the practice of prayer, confession, and the Mass. The Church plays a significant role in shaping moral and ethical guidelines for its members. With a rich history, the Catholic Church has had a profound influence on art, culture, and global society throughout its existence.
