A list was made of words to describe the Church. Pilgrim was one of the words. Why?

A pilgrim is a person on a journey toward God. We know that the way is Jesus Christ. The Church is on the way.

Read Lumen Gentium from the Second Vatican Council. It is a beautiful, amazing document. It is also where the term “pilgrim Church” was coined.
