Just how far does the Catholic Church reach?

While I was reading Pope Pius XI’s Quas Primas, he quoted Pope Leo XIII,

His empire includes not only Catholic nations, not only baptized persons who, though of right belonging to the Church, have been led astray by error, or have been cut off from her by schism, but also all those who are outside the Christian faith; so that truly the whole of mankind is subject to the power of Jesus Christ.

The is pre-Vatican II. Ummm….
