Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE MEANING OF THE WORD
"APOSTLE."


Q. 1. What does the word "Apostle" mean? Does it mean more than a reference to the 12 Apostles in the day of Jesus? Can the Pope be an Apostle? How about a prophet or someone who has apparitions of Jesus?

A. 1. The word "Apostle" originates from the Greek word "apostolos" which means "one who is sent." The Catholic Church refers to the apostles as the special messengers or representatives of Christ. There are twelve Apostles, each having been chosen by Jesus. No one else can claim the title of "Apostle."
