Baltimore Catechism Day 81: catholic = universal


Why is the Catholic Church catholic or universal? The Catholic Church is catholic or universal because, destined to last for all time, it never fails to fulfill the divine commandment to teach all nations all the truths revealed by God.

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world, for a witness to all nations. (Matthew 24:14)

Further reading: CCC 830-835
