Anglo-Catholicism, Anglican Catholicism, or Catholic Anglicanism comprises people, beliefs and practices within Anglicanism that emphasise the Catholic heritage and identity of the various Anglican churches.

Beliefs, Principles & Practices. The word "Church" is often misunderstood. Far from indicating an institution, it is derived from the Greek word ecclesia, which means an assembly of people called for a particular purpose, in this case the worship of God and service of humanity.

Augustine once said of God that, "our hearts are ever restless until they find their rest in Him.". George Weigel’s latest book, “The Irony of Modern Catholic History: How the Church Rediscovered Itself & Challenged the Modern World to Reform,” should help.

From the beginning of Christianity, the Catholic Church defined the canon of Scripture – the books you find in every Christian Bible – and defined what it meant to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Through the centuries, it’s the Catholic Church that preserved the Bible, as well as many other written works, through its monasteries and libraries.
