"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

VATICAN HOSTING A MEETING FOR BLOGGERS 
VATICAN CITY, APRIL 8, 2011 (Zenit.org).- The Vatican is hosting a meeting for bloggers, both to better understand what bloggers need, and to present media initiatives under way in the Church.
Supposing that a large group of bloggers will be in Rome for the beatification of Pope John Paul II, the meeting has been scheduled for the following day, May 2.
The Pontifical Councils for Culture and Social Communications are sponsoring the event. The respective presidents of those two councils will participate, as will the director of the Vatican press office, Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi. 
A communiqué from the culture council explained that the meeting will include two panels. The first will consist of five bloggers who will present some key issues, then opening the floor to general discussion. The second will include representatives of Church communication, who will talk about initiatives "aimed at ensuring an effective engagement by the Church with bloggers." 
The meeting is open to all, but bloggers who wish to attend need to apply by emailing blogmeet@pccs.it and sending a link to their blog. As space is limited to 150 seats and there is a desire to have a representation of the entire blogosphere, entrance passes and further details will be distributed with a view to the diversity of language and geography, typology of blogs (institutional or private, multivoice or personal), subjects of blogs, and the timeliness of requests.
