Why are we united by a spiritual leader?

Mission Lab

All Catholics are united under the same spiritual leadership because Jesus Christ made Peter the chief shepherd of His flock, and provided that Peter’s successors, the Bishops of Rome, would be the heads of His Church and guardians of His truths until the end of time.

Loyalty to the Bishop of Rome, the Pope, will ever be the binding center of our unity and the test of our membership in Christ’s Church.
