The Four Marks of the Church

with Fr. Nathan Ricci

What it is that defines the Catholic Church?  Like all things, the Church has an identity which comes from her characteristics.  Four of these characteristics we call the marks of the Church since they are the unchangeable essence of what the Church is. She is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic, and in this episode we discuss these four marks and their part of the Church’s identity.
