Leadership and spirituality

The leadership of the Catholic church is provided by both the pope and by a hierarchy of clergy - archbishops, bishops, and priests. Bishops and priests lead by spiritual example, and also by teaching their flock about all areas of the Catholic faith. It is their job to educate members of the Catholic church on everything from the meaning of Mass (pp. 52-53) to the importance of prayer and reverence for the Virgin Mary.
