Catholic Organizations are Not Just NGOs

Pope Francis has said that the Church is not an NGO. In fact he has said it more than once. Why is he saying this? Is there something wrong with being an NGO? What does it mean for organisations like CatholicCare that are NGOs and also very much part of the Church?

In this reflection for CatholicCare Sydney, I look at how the mission of a Catholic organization makes it more than just another NGO.
