The world, that is, the system which operates irrespective of Jesus' lordship, hates Jesus and His disciples (Jn 15:18). If the world hates us, it is a good sign that we are true disciples of Jesus and do not belong to the world (Jn 15:19).
The world's hatred of Jesus and Christians is expressed in many ways, especially in anti-Catholic bigotry. Prejudice against Catholics is as old as the Roman emperors, Nero and Domitian, and as recent as the secular media's flagellation of the entire Church for the sexual sins of a few Catholic leaders. It is interesting to note that the secular media would never treat blacks, Jews, or homosexuals as they do Catholics. This would be the height of bigotry. Yet throughout American history, bigotry against Catholics often doesn't count as bigotry.
The sins of the members of the Catholic Church need to be relentlessly pointed out and repented of. However, the world's media wants to do something more. Bigotry is a moneymaker. However, bigotry is a sin. To castigate a sinner and then to be bigoted against that person's race or church is to join the ranks of the sinners. Bigots promote the sins they use as ammunition in their smear campaigns. Bigots, beware!
