Catholicism is a sect of Christianity that was the original way for humans to access Christ through an organized church. Catholicism has a globally organized structure with the Pope leading the church as the Holy Father. The Pope and the center of the Catholic Church lies in Vatican City in Italy. Catholicism has major disagreements with Protestant churches on the doctrine of the Holy Scripture. Catholicism places holy emphasis on communion, church leadership, and the Virgin Mary among other differences in belief.
