She details how different interpretations and denominations were suppressed, using the example of Faustina and her visions, which were initially not accepted by the Catholic Church but later celebrated through the Divine Mercy devotion. Pasulka suggests that genuine spiritual experiences are often marginalized by institutional powers but can later gain recognition and influence 1.

  2. The Concept of the Church in Catholicism: Bishop Robert Barron clarifies the essence of the Catholic Church as the mystical body of Christ, emphasizing its nature as an organism rather than a mere organization. He discusses the inherent human flaws within the Church, such as pride and corruption, as highlighted in the New Testament by Paul's letters to early Christian communities. Barron stresses that despite these imperfections, the Church serves as a vessel for Christ's treasure, which is His love bequeathed to the world 2.
