Default Re: Is the catholic church the largest Charity in the world?

My understanding is that it is. I know it is definite if you consider it and all the charitable organizations within. e.g., KC's, Catholic Charities, Catholic Relief, Orphanages, etc.
Prayers & blessings

Please show us here the lists and total number of CATHOLIC CHARITABLE INSTITUTIONS in the WORLD. It's important for us to know this, to refute the ARGUMENTS of the PROTESTANTS.

In Christ,

I heard that only UN organization does more charity, but of course they can bill the participating governements for the expenses. The Catholic Church is the largest after UN Organization.

I certainly would not consider the UN a "charitable" organization. More like a aethistic, God-less bunch.

Nevertheless, it's humanitarian efforts during disasters, and organizations like UNICEF qualify as charities.
