Guadalajara's Catholic Church is a complex institution housing diverse forms of religious activism, each subject to different types of institution recognition. The study of the identities of the laity requires the methodologically outlining of the I-us-others representation within the fields of interaction. The struggle within Catholicism occurs precisely in this intersection between frames of reference and belonging to groups based on direct contact and ideological agreement.
