Constitutions, Chapter 2, Footnotes:

[2-1] The following are to be noted in reference to the meaning of the terms used: "Church of Christ" (with capital letters) means the mystery of the Church; "church" with small letter means a specific church or any legitimate gathering of the faithful in which the Church of Christ is truly present; "people of God" includes clerics, religious and laity; "community" (as in religious or Premonstratensian) means the group or community of those who have professed our way of living; the various dimensions are explained in nn. 12-16. The context in which these terms are used may better explain the sense of the term used. Some ambiguity cannot be avoided given the subtle colorings of the theological terms used. --- Back
