The faithful are united together in Christ's Mystical Body; that is, we are brought into communion with one another through our communion with Christ. For this reason, St. Paul refers to Jesus as the head of the Mystical Body: "He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church."32 As the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church extends throughout time Christ's work of salvation.

This sin separated mankind from God, darkened the human intellect, weakened the human will, and introduced into human nature an inclination toward sin.
