The official church of the local bishop, his seat of authority, usually located in the city from which the diocese takes its name.
A name given the assembly of the People of God called together from the ends of the earth. This word has three meanings: the people that God gathers together, the local church (diocese), and the liturgical assembly. When we speak of "the Church," it normally refers to the Catholic Church. The word is a translation of the Latin ecclesia, the Greek ekklesia, and the Hebrew qahal ("assembly" or "convocation"); it is derived from the Greek Kyriake ("what belongs to the Lord").
The faithful of the Church who have received the Sacrament of Holy Orders; that is, bishops, priests, and deacons.
The principle that all the bishops of the Church with the Pope at their head form a single "college," which succeeds in every generation the "college" of the Twelve Apostles, with Peter at their head, which Christ instituted as the administrative foundation of the Church.
A gathering of the world's cardinals in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome for the purpose of electing a new Pope.
A permanent state of life recognized by the Church, characterized by the profession of the evangelical counsels.
Often called a synod; a meeting of the bishop and representatives of the clergy, religious, and laity in which matters of diocesan Church discipline and procedure are discussed.
EASTERN CATHOLIC CHURCHES
Often called the Eastern Rites of the Catholic Church, any of the various Churches in union with the Pope whose rites, devotions, customs, and culture developed in connection to the lands associated with the eastern half of the Roman Empire (especially centered in Antioch, Alexandria, and Constantinople).
When speaking of the Sacraments, the term indicates an action or sign that confers the grace it signifies; for example, the pouring of the water and reciting with proper intent the words of Baptism confer the sanctifying grace of the Sacrament.
The office of bishop in the Catholic Church; from the Greek episkopos ("overseer"), from which also is derived the word "bishop."
The assembly of the world's bishops.
The Sacrament by which men are ordained to the episcopacy, priesthood, or diaconate.
Immunity from error and any possibility of error. The gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church whereby the Magisterium can definitively proclaim a doctrine in faith or morals without error. The Church possesses this character as promised by Christ, as does the Pope as defined by the Twentieth Ecumenical Council (Vatican I, 1870).
IN PERSONA CHRISTI
Literally, "in the Person of Christ"; refers to the fact that by virtue of the Sacrament of Holy Orders, the ordained priest participates in the priesthood of Christ and acts in the place of Christ, particularly in the Mass and in conferring the Sacraments.
OBEDIENCE OF FAITH
The obligation of the faithful to accept and believe in the authoritative and infallible teachings of the Magisterium.
The office of Pope in the Catholic Church.
A council involving all the bishops of a particular nation.
The obligation of the faithful to accept teachings of the Magisterium even when the teaching is not solemnly and infallibly defined.
SACRAMENT OF SALVATION
Refers to the Catholic Church because she is the sign and the instrument of the communion of God and men, established by Christ as a means to achieve the salvation of souls.
Those who are properly baptized and known by the name Christian, but who do not profess the entirety of the Catholic Faith or have not preserved unity with the Pope. Separated Brethern possess a certain, albeit imperfect, communion with the Catholic Church.
