"'The Church' is the People that God gathers in the whole world. She exists in local communities and is made real as a liturgical, above all a Eucharistic, assembly. She draws her life from the Word and the Body of Christ and so herself becomes Christ's Body... Lay believers are in the front line of Church life; for them the Church is the animating principle of human society...And so, worshipping everywhere by their holy actions, the laity consecrate the world itself to God, everywhere offering worship by the holiness of their lives." - Catechism of the Catholic Church nos. 752, 899, 901
