But seriously, what are the prospects for Catholic Christianity in the West? (Whether Roman or Orthodox)


When the leadership are the problem, the priesthood; then for the laity under corrupt authorities who are leading them astray as fast as they can contrive - well, there is a real problem.

My impression is that - consequently - there is a strong Protestant element especially in the most orthodox and traditional Catholics.

I honestly don't see any positive tidal trends in Catholic Christianity in the West - just small eddies and counter-currents, memories, ideas and hopes, as the ocean recedes.
