Translation:My friend from Italy is Catholic.
Ok, you gave me the answer with..."selecting the words from those offered". Since the version with "καθολική χριστινή" is the original sentence that will be used in all "automated" questions such as the choose the right word, the listening etc exercises. We can't edit it at this time.
For straight forward translations into English, we were able to include alternative translations. And we have removed it completely from the new tree.
Sorry about that, please try to get by the sentences by writing the requested "χριστινή" when it pops up again. Thank you.
I am wondering about the origin of the word "καθολική" based on the fact that when I toured Greece I found out that "καθολικον" was the main church (building) in a monastery in Meteora. Also in Spanish we call the religion "Católica Apostólica Romana" (Roman Catholic in English). I believe that there was a schism around the year 1,000 AD when the Christian religion separated in 2: The Orthodox based in the capital of the Byzantine empire, Constantinople, and the Roman Catholic which followed the Pope located in Rome.
I was raised catholic and I am now atheist. Anyway, one of the lies that they taught me during catechism in 1958 was that the Greek Orthodox Church was irrelevant and that WE, the Catholics, were the "real" successors and followers of Jesus Christ. I guess that's where the word "καθολική" applies i.e. global.
I don't think anyone cares about your religious beliefs. But everyone wants a good man for a classmate.
Religions are global franchising companies. The headquarters of one company are at Rome, of another at Constantinople, of another at Mecca, and of another in the Indies.
What serious person cares about them; Here teachers are, mostly, good people and help. Try to learn as much as you can and you won't lose.
Yes, this is a problem that we had solved years ago but with the new audio system it has returned and we'll have to modify each of these individually, along with the other errors that have appeared we cna't seem to keep up. Thank you for letting us know and I'll add this to the list.
Sorry, for the confusion.
