The Church Militant: in Minnesota...

“But we teach that there is only one Church, and not two, and that the one and true Church is the assembly (coetus) of men bound together by the profession of the same Christian faith and by the communion of the same sacraments, under the rule of legitimate pastors, and especially of the one vicar of Christ on earth, the Roman pontiff.”

St. Robert Bellarmine: De Ecclesia Militante, 2 (17th cent.).
