The Catholic title is “The Apocalypse of St. John.” The translation of “Apocalypse” to Revelation is a bit clumsy, inasmuch as that’s also a collective noun used to describe the entire bible. At the same time, the Apocalypse consists of several individual revelations. Catholics have adopted the more anglicized, Protestant titles of biblical books since Vatican II, so we do speak of “Revelation,” but once in a while a little discrimination between Revelation, and Revelations still pops out.
