Why is the word "catholic" not capitalized in the (Nicene) Creed?
I know that in the new translation introduced last Advent it is not.
I had thought it was capitalized in the EF, but when I checked my missal "Catholic" was only capitalized on the English side. :shrug:
Et unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. And in one holy, **C**atholic and Apostolic Church.
This suggests to me that we are only professing belief in the "church" as in the protestant belief that the church consists of all believers.
I had always thought (since my conversion at least) that we were professing belief in the Church instituted by Jesus Christ himself.
Your thoughts please.
