The Holy Catholic Church, the Universal Church, is divided into three supernatural missions:
The Church Suffering comprises the souls of the righteous suffering in purgatory as they are purified for Heaven.
The Church Triumphant comprises the souls of the Saints who have been glorified in Heaven.
The Church Militant comprises the souls on Earth engaged in battle against the forces evil.
The Church Militant ("Ecclesia Militans") is the Christian militia. The Church Militant does battle against sin, the devil and the demonic "rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12).
"Christians are born for combat."
-Pope Leo XIII, "Sapientiae Christianae"
