  One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Roman Catholic Church, comprising particular Churches, both of Western and Eastern Rites, that form a single Church, claims to be the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
Etymologically, the word "catholic" comes from the Greek adjective καθολικός, formed on the basis of the adverb καθόλου (in general, entirely), which in turn is composed of the elements κατὰ (according to, in keeping with) and ὅλου, neuter genitive of ὅλος (whole).
In keeping with this idea, the Roman Catholic Church sees as not part of the Catholic Church all the groups that it judges to be in a state of heresy or schism.

The Holy Church confesses and believes that the sheep have never been deprived of their Divine Pastor, and that the Church never could either err for want of understanding—for the understanding of God dwells within her—or submit to false doctrines for want of courage—for within her dwells the might of the Spirit of God.
Silence on the part of the Church in not rejecting a writer is of great significance; but this silence becomes a decisive sentence when the Church does not reject a decision brought against a doctrine of any sort; for in not rejecting the decision she maintains it with all her authority.

 We Believe in the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church
Apostolic just simply means "from the apostles." In the early Church, even in St. Paul's day, competing versions of Christianity began to arise, primarily Gnosticism and Docetism.
The Catholic Church allows Orthodox Christians to commune, and Pope John Paul II recently spoke of the Eastern Church as one of the two "lungs" of Christendom.
However, we Catholics still believe the Pope to be visible head of the Church, who when speaking on matters of faith and morals on behalf of the Church is infallible, and this presents a problem in light of East/West relations.

 U.S. Catholic Bishops - Catechism of the Catholic Church
The Church does not possess them of herself; it is Christ who, through the Holy Spirit, makes his Church one, holy, catholic, and apostolic, and it is he who calls her to realize each of these qualities.
The Church is "the world reconciled." She is that bark which "in the full sail of the Lord's cross, by the breath of the Holy Spirit, navigates safely in this world." According to another image dear to the Church Fathers, she is prefigured by Noah's ark, which alone saves from the flood.
The whole Church is apostolic, in that she remains, through the successors of St. Peter and the other apostles, in communion of faith and life with her origin: and in that she is "sent out" into the whole world.

 THE ECUMENICAL COMMUNION OF CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCHES
Therefore, "catholicity" in its truest sense defines something of substance held to clearly as the essence and heart of historic Catholic Christian faith as opposed to a generic and general term able to be validly used by any and all comers.
This principal excludes innovations to catholic Christian faith which developed in later periods of the church's life, particularly in the latter stages of the medieval period and the nineteenth century, as well as those in the earlier centuries known as Gnostic heresies, or theological heresy, and schismatic heterodoxy.
The genuine catholicity of faith, worship, order, and practice of those congregations and dioceses and their divergent but historically recognized liturgical usages, would therefore, be recognized and supported within our communion in the spirit of Ephesians 4:1-6 and our Lord's prayer for unity of His body among men.

The Church of their own day, for whatever reason, fails to live up to what they think Christianity should be: in their view there has been a falling away from the beautiful ideals of the early Church.
Whitehead shows how the visible body which today bears the name "the Catholic Church" is the same Church which Christ established to carry on and perpetuate in the world his Words and his Works—and his own divine Life—and to bring salvation and sanctification to all mankind.

I was no fan of this Pope, who I’d argue, as does jo(e), single-handedly set the Church back decades, and who made it impossible for me ever to make a full return to the faith of my childhood.
