The Church Militant is the Body of Christ on earth now.

The Church Suffering is the members of the Body in Christ in Purgatory who are being purified from all stain of sin.

The Church Triumphant is the Body of Christ in Heaven. Triumphalism is the error of attributing the virtues and glory of the saints in Heaven to the Church Militant.
