Catholic Epistles

(The) of the New Testament are those Epistles not addressed to any particular church or individual. Conventionally they are seven- viz. 1 James, 2 Peter, 1 Jude, and 3 John; but 2 John is addressed to a “lady,” and 3 John to Gaius, and, of course, are not Catholic Epistles either in matter or otherwise.
