How is the Episcopal Church different from the Catholic Church?
Another distinction is that, in contrast to the Catholic Church, the Episcopal Church rejects the notion that the Bishop of Rome — the Pope — has supreme authority over the entire Universal Church. Similarly to the Catholics, they do not have a centralized authority figure such as the Pope; instead, they have bishops and cardinals who serve as advisors.
What is the difference between archbishop and cardinal?
The College of Cardinals is made up of 178 cardinals from throughout the world, including 13 from the United States, who are appointed by the Pope. It serves as an advisory council to the Pope and, in the event of his death, elects a new Pope. Bishop of a major or metropolitan diocese, often known as an archdiocese, an archbishop is the highest ranking bishop in the church. There are 45 archbishops in the United States.
