It’s estimated that there may be as many as 1.1 billion members of the Catholic faith around the globe, comprising about 50% of all Christians worldwide. The majority of these, some 39%, live Latin America and the Caribbean, while 24% live in Europe, 16% live in Sub-Saharan Africa, followed by 12% in Asia and 8% in North America. With Catholics spread across so many different parts of the world, it’s no surprise that followers of the faith speak a wide variety of languages, including French, German, English, Portuguese, Spanish, Polish, French, Italian, Arabic, and Croatian, just to name a few. In fact, the Holy See has Twitter accounts to connect with his constituents in 9 different languages!
