What gifts does God give the Catholic Church?

y-giftschurch-wofIn the video below, Father Robert Barron speaks about the gifts that God has given to the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church has all the gifts that Christ wants His people to have, and we have these gifts in their fullness. We have His Holy Spirit, Holy Scripture, Theological Tradition, and Apostolic authority which gives us a source of order and protection. We have the liturgy, at the heart of which, is the Eucharist. We have the other 6 Sacraments, which are the means by which Christ makes his life available to us. We also have the gift of Mary and her maternal presence in our spiritual lives.
