This "universal" interpretation is often used to understand the phrase "One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church" in the Nicene Creed, the phrase "the catholic faith" in the Athanasian Creed, and the phrase "holy catholic church" in the Apostles' Creed.
However, the Roman Catholic Church, which holds that it is the whole Church, normally refers to itself simply as the Catholic Church, as shown in its publication of a "Catechism of the Catholic Church".
As noted, in addition to the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Churches, the Oriental Orthodox Churches, and the Assyrian Church of the East all see themselves as the "one holy catholic and apostolic Church" of the Nicene Creed.

In 1941, there was a schism in the Liberal Catholic Church in the United States, surrounding a controversy involving Bishop Charles Hampton, who, while he was himself a theosophist, wished to keep adherence to theosophical tenets optional for the clergy.
The Liberal Catholic Church (Dutch, Belgium, Britain and Canada), retains the emphasis on the theosophical tenets, but practices ordination of women to Holy Orders and requires its clergy to hold the ordination of women as a matter of church belief.

 Old Catholic History
Old Catholics are an historic part of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and have their origins in the Ancient Catholic Church of the Netherlands.
