The Church, the Body of Christ, Light to the Nations on pilgrimage in the Shrine of the Holy Face of Manoppello
Christ the Head of the Church
Credo in unum Deum Patrem Omnipotentem, factorem caeli et terrae visibilium omnium et invisibilium.
I believe in one God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen (visible and invisible)
From Paul's Letter to the Ephesians Chapter One Verses 15-22
"For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might which he accomplished in Christ when he raised him from the dead and made him sit at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, not only in this age but also in that which is to come; and he has put all things under his feet and made him the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fulness of him who fills all in all."
