Sometimes I get to feeling pretty good about my faith knowledge, and then I start thinking more and God humbly brings me back to realizing I have sooooo far to go.
*]I know that most non-Catholics consider “the Church” to be all believers - an invisible Church.
*]We Catholics, on the other hand, know that Jesus founded a true, visible Church - the Catholic Church.[/LIST]
But my question is…is it also correct for Catholics to explain to non-Catholics that if they are baptized and are Christians, they are part of the “Church” (the Catholic Church), but just not in full communion with it.
I’m trying hard to explain what “Church” means to a non-Catholic who insists he is part of Christ’s Church (invisible to him) because he is a Christian. I’m wondering if there is some common ground here - yes, he is part of the Church - but just not in full communion with it. Is that correct? (he won’t like it, but is it true?)
