Eastern Catholic Churches

“The Holy Catholic Church, which is the Mystical Body of Christ, is made up of the faithful who are organically united in the Holy Spirit by the same faith, the same sacraments and the same government and who, combining together into various groups which are held together by a hierarchy, form separate Churches or Rites” (Second Vatican Council, Decree on the Catholic Churches of the Eastern Rite, no. 2).
