Catholicism spread worldwide, at pace with European colonialism: to the Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania.
Catholicism is monotheistic: it acknowledges that God is one, eternal, all-powerful (omnipotent), all-knowing (omniscient), all-good (omnibenevolent), and omnipresent (present everywhere simultaneously).
See, for instance, on the charge of anti-Semitism, Relations between Catholicism and Judaism.) Pope John Paul II acknowledged publicly that certain members (including leadership) of the Catholic Church have sometimes been involved in questionable activities, and asked God to forgive the sins of its members, both in action and omission.

 Australian Information from Wikipedia
Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy focus on Mary as a living person who can intercede to her Son, Jesus, on behalf of humanity.
Catholicism has traditionally accorded to the Virgin Mary the veneration of hyperdulia, which rests in part upon the angelic salutation, "Hail, full of grace" (Lk 1:28), a phrase with momentous theological impact.
The central role of Mary in the belief and practice of Catholicism is reflected in the fact that many Catholic churches contain side altars dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

 Perversion
The term perversion was also used in the pre-Vatican II era by some Roman Catholics to describe the process of converting from Roman Catholicism to Protestantism.
Whereas a protestant who joined Roman Catholicism was described as a convert, a Catholic who became a Protestant was called a pervert.
The phrase is no longer used by mainstream Catholicism, though a small conservative fringe do on occasion still use it.

The next major rift within Catholicism was in the 11th century.
Doctrinal disputes, including that about the Filioque clause, but more importantly conflicts between methods of Church government, and the evolution of separate rites and practices, precipitated a split in AD 1054 that divided the Catholic Church once again, this time between a "West" and an "East".
Some branches of Catholicism, notably Roman Catholicism, believe that adoration and worship is due to the Eucharist as the body and blood of Christ.

Belief in God as a Trinity is considered essential by Eastern Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, and orthodox Protestantism.

 Talk:Catholicism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Catholicism" is rather long and and so much of the content that is rather specific to either of the afore mentioned Christian Catholic Groups ought to be moved to their own respective articles to focus the article.
At the moment Catholicism, Catholic and Catholic Church (disambiguation) seem to be doing essentially the same thing: describing the different meanings attached to the term 'Catholic' in a theological context.
OTOH, Catholic Church (disambiguation) is useful as a stand-alone page insofar as it helps mediate the ongoing debates over what constitutes the Catholic Church and the degree to which it is synonymous with the Roman Catholic Church.

While northern and central Germany was the origin of the Reformation, Austria (and Bavaria) was the heart of the Counter-Reformation in the 16th and 17th century, when the absolute monarchy of Habsburg imposed a strict regime to maintain Catholicism's power and influence among Austrians.
The Habsburgs viewed themselves as the vanguard of Roman Catholicism and all other confessions and religions were oppressed.
After 1918 First Republic Catholic leaders such as Theodor Innitzer and Ignaz Seipel took leading positions within or close to the Austrian Government and increased their influence during the time of the Austrofascism—Catholicism was treated much like a state religion by dictators Engelbert Dollfuss and Kurt Schuschnigg.

Briefly, Protestants become wealthy because they have no "magic wand" to get them into heaven, therefore Protestants have to work constantly and consistently to assure themselves a place in heaven.
On the other hand, Catholicism involves much waving of hands, fixed 'magical' rituals, chanted incantations, a bit of water, and an abracadbra-like prayer: believers' souls become purified for their ascent to heaven.

 more info on heaven - heavan - heven
In Roman Catholicism Heaven is the Physical Realm of God, the Mother of God, the Angels, and the Saints.
Even within religions, such as Catholicism and Protestantism, which dictate faith in Christ and receipt of the sacraments as a prerequiste for Heaven, there still exists in some opinions a "human factor" which prevents the blatantly evil from entering Heaven even if they are a practicing member of a faith.
An example of this would be the case of the American Mafia, in which known mobsters and killers may be seen attending church on a daily basis and professing a belief in Christ.
