What Does "Catholic" Mean?

The word Catholic comes from the Greek word katholikos, which is the combination of two greek words: kata and holos.

Kata means "concerning", whereas holos means "whole".

When these two words are combined they come to mean "concerning the whole".

The word "catholic" being traced back to it's greek roots means "concerning the whole" which can be more simply said as "universal".
