Church Hierarchy, the Mission of the Laity, and the Communion of Saints

Welcome back to the More Than Ordinary Catechism Read-through! Today we covered Part I, Section II, Ch. 3, Article 9, Paragraphs 4-6 and Article 10.

The topics in those sections include:

-Hierarchy within the Catholic Church, and why it’s important

-The role of the Pope, Bishops, and Priests

-The responsibility of the laity as bearers of Christ to the world

-The beauty of Consecrated Life

-The Communion of Saints

-Mary as Mother of the Church

-The Church’s ability to forgive every sin, no matter how grave
