    Modern is either used as an adjective or a noun.

    modern (adj.)
    c. 1500, "now existing;" 1580s, "of or pertaining to present or recent times;" from Middle French moderne (15c.) and directly from Late Latin modernus "modern" (Priscian, Cassiodorus), from Latin modo "just now, in a (certain) manner," from modo (adv.) "to the measure," ablative of modus "manner, measure" (from PIE root *med- "take appropriate measures"). Extended form modern-day attested from 1872.In history, in the broadest sense, opposed to ancient and medieval, but often in more limited use. In Shakespeare, often with a sense of "every-day, ordinary, commonplace." Meaning "not antiquated or obsolete, in harmony with present ways" is by 1808. Of languages, indicating the current form of Greek, etc., 1690s; modern languages as a department of study (1821) comprised those now living (i.e. not Latin or Greek) that were held to have literary or historical importance.

    Slang abbreviation mod is attested from 1960. Modern art is from 1807 (in contrast to ancient; in contrast to traditional, representing departure or repudiation of accepted styles, by 1895); modern dance is attested by 1912; modern jazz by 1954. Modern conveniences is recorded by 1926.

    modern (n.)

    1580s, "person of the present time" (contrasted to ancient), from modern (adj.). From 1897 as "one who is up to date."

    If you are using "modern" in modern world you do so in the Adjective sense. Are you then using "Catholic" in Catholic world also in the Adjective sense? Or have you decided Catholic is a noun because you have chosen to CAPITALIZE it?

    "f you are using "modern" in modern world you do so in the Adjective sense. Are you then using "Catholic" in Catholic world also in the Adjective sense? Or have you decided Catholic is a noun because you have chosen to CAPITALIZE it? "

    If you are using "you" to address and ask a question to the poster of this piece, Dachsie, you do so incorrectly on all counts. Dachsie is not using any word nor did Dachsie decide anything in regard to this simple re-posting of a piece that originated with other entities.

    Just for your miscellaneous fund of knowledge.

    The word "catholic" is a word that means universal.

    It can be used as either a proper noun or an adjective.

    As an adjective, the attributes of the Church that Jesus referred to as "My Church"
    are that it is
    one,
    holy,
    catholic, and
    apostolic.

    When one uses the term "Catholic Church" is a collective proper noun and a redundant phrase.

    There is only one Church and it goes without saying that it is the Church that Jesus founded.

    "If you are using "you" to address and ask a question to the poster of this piece"

    "You" is directed to anyone who responds. No response = not you.
