Interesting Facts About the Catholic Church

The Roman Catholic Church is one of the largest and the oldest religions in the world with 1.25 billion people around the world calling themselves members. The head of the church is the Pope, who considers himself (and who also is widely regarded by the faithful) as the successor of St. Peter. Roman Catholicism also has a special place for the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ, who through divine intervention gave birth to Christ while remaining a virgin, thus conceiving free of original sin (the Immaculate Conception).
