Roman Catholic Church [New/AllTech/Restored]

1.) The Roman Catholic Church does not claim to be the real-life Roman Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church thread is a religious organization that functions as the RCC in the NS Universe. Please telegram any comments, questions, or concerns to this nation.
2.) This is a merger of these threads: 1, 2, and 3. Please redirect any queries or posts on there to this new thread. We kindly ask that you do not post any "I refuse to recognize your Church" letters, hate letters, declarations of war, or any sort of that stuff, etc.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

Greetings brothers and sisters!

Throughout the annals of history, it has been our sacred duty and privilege to transmit the living message of Christ through the Apostolic Tradition. In his final days, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, entrusted the Twelve Apostles, with the task of giving an authentic interpretation of the messages of the Holy Mother Church. Since then, the apostles and their successors have preached and witnessed the message of the Lord. Assisted by the Holy Spirit, and guided by the Magesterium of the Church, our work never ceases; we have been given the mission of living more fully from the gift of divine revelation, now let us share it with others!

May the Lord continue to bless us now and forever,

Paul VII
His Holiness The Pope

THE SECRETARIAT OF STATE



The Secretariat of State is the oldest dicastery in the Roman Curia, the government of the Roman Catholic Church. It is headed by the Cardinal Secretary of State, currently His Eminence Cardinal Geronimo Dandino, Bishop of Protempo.

Congregations are a type of dicastery (department with a jurisdiction) of the Roman Curia, which is the central administrative organism of the Catholic Church. Each Congregation is led by a prefect, who is a Cardinal. The Cardinal-Prefect is usually assited by a Secretary, who is usually an Archbishop. In turn, the Archbishop-Secretary is sometimes assisted by an Undersecretary, usually a Monsignor.
