This comment from Just Another Begger in the discussion on Benedict's "Post-Constantinian" Strategy below deserves to be highlighted.
"We need to be continuously reminded that to be Catholic is to be Christ; our life as a Catholic is a PARTICIPATION with Christ in HIS life, passion, death and resurrection, both individually and corporately. Thus, the Eucharist and the Liturgy become central to our lives again. Did not our fourth Pope, St. Clement say that where Christ is, there is His Church?"
Actually, it was Ignatius of Antioch who said it but you are certainly right about his meaning:
"Where Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church.
