For a non-Catholic Christian, picking a church can mean also picking a shepherd, leading to a kind of self-shepherding-sheep paradigm. Catholics are led by a local ordinary, or bishop, and are pastored under his authority by their parish priest, defined by territorial bounds, not doctrinal differences. Christ prayed for unity as close as that He shares with the Father. Let us join the Lord in His prayer “that we may be one.”
