Rosary Beads, Fish on Friday, Ashes on the forehead, nuns and priests in habits, always fasting for something. We're all familiar with the stereotypes. So how come they don't match the reality at all?
...
We've lost our identity.

The proper sentence would be: we lost our Hollywood created (fake) identity.

- Since St Pius X the Church somewhat disapproved the Rosary during the Mass

- Most Catholics ate fish when they fished it (outside of the Western world even now). The real Catholic identity was vegetable (beans, pees, lentil) on Fridays and on other days too except may be Sunday

- Ashes can be seen in foreheads on Ash Wednesdays, to move the ash distribution to Sundays was temporary change in the fifties

- and fortunately recently more and more nuns and priests can be seen  in habit

Moral: distrust the media, be vigilant against the news.
