"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

The CATHOLIC CHURCH in ABU DHABI, UAE is very strong and ALIVE: The Official Opening of St. Joseph Parish

Thanks to sister Mary Ann Sismar for sharing us this good news! Praise unto our Triune God, One God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit! The 'trying hard, copy-cat' Iglesia Ni Cristo® (INC of Felix Y. Manalo) has none of these MARKS of a TRUE CHURCH-- it's universality represented by different races, tongue, cultures ["...Filipinos, Indians, South Americans, Lebanese, and Europeans...] which has deep historical link to the ancient Biblical Church and to the See of Rome where Peter reigns over the whole UNIVERSAL CHURCH OF CHRIST!

Roman Catholicism in the United Arab Emirates

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Roman Catholic Church in the United Arab Emirates is part of the worldwide Roman Catholic Church, under the spiritual leadership of the Pope in Rome.

There are over 250,000 foreign workers in the country who are Catholics, representing around 7% of the total population, largely Filipinos, Indians, South Americans, Lebanese, and Europeans. The United Arab Emirates forms part of the Apostolic Vicariate of Southern Arabia and the Vicar Apostolic Bishop Paul Hinder is based in Abu Dhabi.[1] The Vatican has diplomatic relations with the UAE, represented by Archbishop Paul-Mounged El-Hachem.[2]
