The Apostle's Creed - Prayers - Catholic Online

Many prayers for various things. It's Catholic but may be of interest to others as well.

I'm a member of a conservative Presbyterian church. We often corporately repeat the Apostles creed.

Apostles' Creed

1. I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:

2. And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord:

3. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary:

4. Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell:

5. The third day he rose again from the dead:

6. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty:

7. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead:

8. I believe in the Holy Ghost:

9. I believe in the holy catholic church: the communion of saints:

10. The forgiveness of sins:

1l. The resurrection of the body:

12. And the life everlasting. Amen.

Do you see any difference in this and the one you posted? There is one small but significant difference.
Catholic vs catholic. catholic is the word that means universal. In other words the creed belongs to all Christians. Catholic on the other hand is the church of Rome as in The Roman CATHOLIC church. The creed applies to all Christians no matter what their denomination. Praise be to God for the truth contained within it!

Not true at all. "Catholic" spelled with a capital means the RC church.

Well today at Mass I saw Catholic spelled with a large C and also a small c in our prayer book. We pray for all people who follow Christ and for the whole world.
