You can find this truth yourself. The biggest mistake the protestant revolt made was to remove the alter from the center of worship and make it the pulpit.Man became the center of worship. The Eucharist is the source and summit of Catholicism. God gave us His infallible word and He did not leave us to flounder around coming up with our own interpretations based on opinion.He gave us an infallible teacher when He founded His Church and gave Peter the keys. Further He charged Peter with His Sheep making Him the visible head until His return.
Even the angels have a hierarchy and all good order has different levels of authority. God's plan worked and it works in spite of the evil of men either within or from outside the Church.Not one single Pope-not even the worst-ever touched doctrine.
