The paper discusses the life cycle of the Catholic Church as a social and cultural institution making emphasis on the analysis of its leaders (popes). The failure of the church’s leadership is shown, as well as the crisis of ideology and organizational strategy, and the reasons for that are analyzed. The inference is made about the decline in creativity of popes over the last 500 years, which could lead to the collapse of the Catholic Church.
