[quote:1eja0d3m]In the creed, we Protestants (wonder what we’re protesting, and why still?) say, “I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic church…” meaning the Church entire. Small C sort of lets us off the hook.
A query: do Catholics view all the church, including those whom I have seen you refer to as “separated bretheren,” as part of the whole Church?
Yes and there is even been counsels headed by John Paul II and other Christian leaders to help bring us together. Further, The Holy Fatherwrote an Encyclical Letter called UT UNUM SINT[/url:1eja0d3m] (On commitment to Ecumenism 1995.05.25) to help us understand the differences and how we can work to unify the Christian Community.
