Catholic Identity: Where To Find It?

I just found this site, giving a daily recap of the legal proceedings against Msgr William J. Lynn and Father James Brennan. Warning: this is very difficult reading.

It’s a curious thing to be reading about the Vatican crackdown on Caritas International, presumably for reasons of forging a stronger Catholic identity. (Smells like teen spirit a bit of misogyny to me.) I wonder how much longer before organizations will sever ties with the institutional Church for the same reason: strenthening their Catholic identity. Remember that Kansas City deacon candidate, Jim McConnell?

Catholic identity is most strongly found in one’s fidelity to Christ, and less by one’s institutional loyalties.
