This is the great Christian reality that we all too often forget. God has anointed us with his Holy Spirit at baptism.

Year for Consecrated Life (2) CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - January 1, 2015 ... Christ and pastor of the whole Church, the Roman Pontiff has full, supreme and universal power over the Church.

One might better characterise it as a practice of communion than as a practice of authority. ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/01/year-for-consecrated-life-2.html
