By means of these gifts, the Catholic Church can act and grow as a community in Christ, by serving men and giving them His saving word and activity.

The Catholic Church is nourished by God’s saving truth, the sacraments, and the apostolic ministry. Through these gifts, the Church Militant (the Church on earth) is able to grow and to continue Christ’s saving work in the world.
