If you're a devout Catholic, or even if you've only attended a Catholic Mass or two, then you know that Catholicism seemingly has a language of its own. From prayers, rituals, sacraments and saints, the Catholic Church has a host of unique terminology that can be bewildering to those of other faiths.
The Roman Catholic Church is the largest Christian church in the world, with more than 1 billion followers. Catholics believe that they continue the original Church as established by Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago, with the pope as St. Peter's successor. Catholics are also unique among Christians because of their veneration of the Virgin Mary and the saints, whom they ask to pray for them. Famous Catholics today include John Krasinski, Josh Duhamel, Selena Gomez and Lea Michele.
