What do you know about the Catholic Church?

There are a lot of misconceptions going around about what the Catholic Church is, what it, teaches, how it works, etc. This quiz is not an attempt to convert anyone but just to see if you have any misconceptions. Have fun.

Note: While members of the Orthodox churches are considered to be Catholics, I am using the term here to refer to Roman Catholics only.

Keep in mind that the answers do not depend on whether you agree with the Catholic position or not. They are based on what a Catholic would believe.
