Dear Mike,

Notwithstanding your suspicion that I knew very well what you meant I can assure I did not or I would not have wasted both my time and yours in asking such a redundant question!

I confess however that I remain unclear as to what exactly you are saying. I do not mean to be obtuse and am doing my best to hear accurately what you are saying. Are you equating the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church with the body whose official title you have explained is the Holy Catholic Church (aka the Roman Catholic Church) to the exclusion of Orthodox Christianity? Are Orthodox Christians members of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church? Or are we not?

Please be assured that I do not feel insulted. I am seeking clarification of your meaning so as to accurately understand what you are saying.

I would also appreciate it if you could enlarge upon your words "the protector of the faith". Given your explanation that you were referring to the body known as the Roman Catholic Church or to give it the official title of which you have made me aware Holy Catholic Church do you mean that this body is the protector of the faith and that Orthodox Churches are not? Or do you mean that we are both protectors? And how does this protection work or operate?

It would be good to understand you better on these points. Thank you for what ever help you can give me here.

Simon
