It's not necessarily the Pope or Bishops or other such religious leaders or authorities in the Catholic Church, but instead the community of Catholics around me such as my girlfriend and family. I think there is definite value in that type of community and organization; I'm not sure I find much value in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church.

I appreciate the insight the Catholic Church provides, but I am fully capable of assessing these things and determining my view on them. However, I've come to realize that a community is important. No man is an island, and all that. I think a community praying together is important and powerful, I'm just not sure it needs to be under the guise of a large religious organization.
