Describe and explain three different features of the Roman Catholic Church?

sorry this is for my homework, thank you:D

The Pope is not only head of the Roman Catholic Church, he is also head of state. He is a political entity. (which is why in Revelation the political side of the Papacy is described as a dragon)

The Catholic Church though under the Pope is a religious entity by itself. (which is why in the book of Revelation the church is described as a woman who rides the beast) And when the Pope died in prison under Napoleon, and another one was also taken prisoner–the Catholic Church continued to function.

The Ordinariate, which was just set up last year in England, and this year in the US, is described in the book of Revelation as the “Image of the Beast”. The two horned beast (Anglican Church) sets up this image and gives its power to the first beast (Papacy). The Ordinariate is comprised of dissatisfied Anglicans who defected to the Catholic Church, yet want to retain their Anglican ways, but they are under the rule of the Pope.
