Based upon standard Roman Catholic Theology, particularly that which pertains to the establishment and authority of Christ's own Church, as documented in the standard Theological handbook, Dogmatic Theology, Volume 2, Christ's Church, by Msgr. G. Van Noort Part 8: Pages 20 - 22, Church established in order that Christian religion would be practiced and people made holy; Church is a religious, spiritual, and supernatural society; Church is the religion of Christ in concrete form. The Church, through its clergy, labors to make those attached to it holy and pleasing to God, and applying the redemption of Christ to souls. The practice of the Christian religion is realized through the sanctification of souls. (Griff comments: Who today does this? Not Novus Ordo or Protestants or others, only Traditional Catholic clerics.) The Church serves to continue Christ's mission in this world, which is to seek and save what is lost and sanctify souls. Society is religious in nature, not temporal, so not concerned with temporal (political, economic) matters. Though the religion and the Church are distinct realities, they are joined by Christ and cannot be separated. Apart from the Church it is impossible to observe the Gospel. (Griff comments: Since only Traditional Catholics truly and fully observe the Gospel, this is yet one further proof that Traditional Catholics are the Church and its clerics lawfully appointed authorities within it, for otherwise the observance of the Gospel would not be present. Note how the Novus Ordo has no such full observance of the Gospel, and therefore what that means.)
