Pope Benedict XVI visits the U.S. for the first time as pope in April.  He'll encounter an American Catholic Church wrestling with many issues, from the fallout of the sexual abuse crisis to the tension between those who want change and those who seek a reaffirmation of traditional church teachings. 

As part of Beliefnet's extensive coverage of the pope's visit, we're asking our Catholic readers to take part in this survey.

Take our  U.S. Catholics survey, and let us know what you think.
