We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Catholicism

Entities and organizations form of the Catholic Church is known as the Grand Duke (Catholic Church), referred to as "Association." After the crucifixion of Jesus, his disciples organization was distributed in the western city of Rome, the Roman Empire, as well as the eastern part of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, Jerusalem, five parish; there was no real name at that time. The name "catholic" originated from the idea “the land Jesus Christ goes to is the Catholic Church" put forward by the Bishop of Antioch St. Ignatius who took over from the 1970s AD. It is a whole church with faith and doctrine completely unified, complete heritage. As Rome church in chief position, so the Catholic Church gradually refers to Roman Catholic Church gradually. But whether they have the chief authority on Roman is controversial, often filling "Roma" to show distinction. At the same time, Ignatius and later bishop St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Izmir Bishop Polycarp emphasize the word "orthodoxy" most. Therefore, the official name of the Orthodox is Catholic Orthodox church, also known as positive church.

As of 2010, more than 1.2 billion Catholics are spread worldwide, accounting for half of the total population of Christians. China Catholic Church is an independent Catholic religion, and China tied with Christianity as two of China's five major religions. Chinese Catholic Church is divided into autonomous, autobiography, self-support of the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association who has 5.7 million followers, and those who follow the Holy See of the Roman Catholic Church in China (Mainland). As a result, Catholicism is an important part of Chinese culture.


















Catholicism in China
Missionaries Alopen was introduced the Gospel to China for the first time in AD 635. Catholic Church in China has had a long and complex history. At present, the highest organization of the Catholic Church is Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association and Chinese Catholic Bishops College. The Chinese Catholic is "one group and one league". China's Catholic Church implements three-self policy, separated from the Holy See and the Vatican. It is an independent church in China, and has 500 million believers currently. These "Three-Self Patriotic Movement organization" accept the leadership of China's State Administration for Religious Affairs. After the establishment of People's Republic of China, China's Catholic Church remains in communion with the Roman Pontiff. However, under the influence of the Chinese government, some bishops, priests and faithful founded and joined the "Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association," in 1957. The believers are led by their church leaders and separated from the direct leadership of the Pope. Known as the "Church on earth", "open church", the "official church" or "patriotic church." Another part of the bishops, priests and faithful to go underground works. Known as the "underground church", "loyalty Church", "unofficial church" or "suffering Church."


















Theological Theory
Jesus Christ
Catholics esteem Jesus is God the Father's Son, Savior of all mankind, "Messiah," "Kilis Governor". As his Incarnation and Redemption nations, lest people would suffer hardships. Christ comes from the Greek translation of the Hebrew word "Messiah", and translated as "anointed." If not Jesus fully realized sacred mission expressed by the word, it will not be his exclusive name. Because in Israel, people who is to perform the mission entrusted by God and dedication to the Lord's, just because of the name of God is chrismation. For example: kings, priests, and a few of the prophet. The situation of the Messiah should be is the most outstanding, because God sent him for the formal establishment of his kingdom. Messiah should be on the Lord's anointed by God to become kings, priests and prophets in the same time. Jesus with its triple function priests, prophets and kings, to achieve the expectations of Israel's Messiah.

Trinity
Catholic Church believes that the Trinity is a mystery, the mystery is not to let people in the world fully understand, but described the Trinity origin and morphology. Catholic Church believes that the world and the universe exists a supernatural and super social power, which is God. He is unique, all-powerful and the god who creating all visible and invisible things. Because he has three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit, so called him "Trinity" God. Because of the Father in heaven, calling him a Father, is considered paramount, dominate all the power. He is the "Trinity" in the first place. Son, Jesus Christ, born of the Father, and send by the Father come to earth, with their bloody sacrifice on the cross to save the world's suffering. He is the "Trinity" in the second. The total of the Holy Spirit sent by the Father, Son and Holy Spirit enlighten people's wisdom and faith, people shun evil and follow the good. He is the "Trinity" in the third. These three persons are not independent of the three, but the same body, composed of three God's unified whole.

God's Creation
Catholic Church believes that God created everything in the universe. And of course, God created human beings. "Old Testament Genesis," reads: God use five days’ time to create a nature of all things, made people in the sixth day and rest in the seventh day. It is because God created everything, that he was said to be supreme, omnipotent omniscient, omnipresent in the one true God, the highest masters of the universe.

Human Sin
Catholic Church believes that human nature is sinful. Because God made Adam and mankind Eve, they were placed in the Garden of Eden, lived a carefree life. But later in the devil (serpent) lure, they eat the tree of good and evil in the Garden of Eden on fruit, which angered God, was expelled from paradise to the ground work. Adam and Eve's sin has been transmitted to all their descendants, which is human sin. Getting through the sacrament (Baptism) can wash away sins committed before the coming into the church.
