No, I actually lost faith in the RCC - EVEN with this pope - This institution is a HYPOCRITICAL institution that does not practice what it preaches.
I can see how this church (using their power as the famous Boston Cardinal just recently - what ever his shitty name is... ) who actually threatened and intimidated the poor abused kids and families to keep them quiet) were able to keep control of their dishonest behavior through out history... unfortunately for them, communications today, finally caught up with them.
The same could be said about America right now and many of its institutions e.g. the military.
Do you blame the military -do you blame the many authentic for the few illegitimate? Institutions are perverted by people.
You have to look beyond the perversion and beyond the perverts to see what is good and what is that which they can not pervert -what is that to place your faith in and what is that which will restore the institution.
When I look at the Church I see the deposit of Faith -His teachings, His word -that is the Church.
When I look at America I see the self evident -the declaration of Faith and the observance of His Word as supreme and unalienable -premise for authentic and legitimate freedom and self determination all codified in the Constitution.
In my opinion, confusing the good with the bad -throwing out the baby with the bath water assists evil more than it opposes it...
Yet remember the institution is not just the clergy, the institution is us, the community, the family that is The Church
