Need quick answer on Church Militant : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread

When I studied Ecclesiology, I remember the division of the Chruch Triumphant (those in heaven), Church Militant (us striving to get to Heaven) and Church Suffering (souls in purgatory).

I recently (within the last few years) read a Church document where this division was rephrased with more modern terminology. I did a search and haven't found this new terminology. Does anyone know the new terminology used to express the three divisions of the Church?

God bless, Hollis

The Catechism speaks of those who are pilgrims on earth; those who are being purified; and those who are in glory.
