The Catechism further describes the Christian family as “a community of faith, hope and charity.” The Catholic Church is also described as a community of believers who share one faith, one hope in one Lord by one baptism (cf. Acts 4:32; Gal. 4). It is in this same spirit/understanding that the Christian family is described as a domestic Church.
