My comment first, take it or leave it: For the most part, the South American Church as well as the Central American Church has failed to evangelize Catholics and keep them in the true Church. The reason evangelicals have made such in-roads into Catholicism there is that the spirit of Vatican Catholicism can’t compete with the Evangelical’s emphasis on a personal relationship with Jesus, the impetus to share Christ with others, what Pope Francis derides as proselytism. The Church there is more concerned with taking power away from the elites and give political power to the disenfranchised. Jesus is left out of the picture. And then to deal with evangelicalism, the Catholic Church tries to mimic its Pentecostal worship but fails because Pentecostalism is not Catholicism. Pre-Vatican II Catholicism is Catholicism.
What I highlight in red below says it all about the crisis of Catholic identity under the current Magisterium.
