Which Church?

Then I find out there are "Charismatic Catholics", and they are supported by the Vatican.  I knew simply from Scripture and confirmed from further research what they did was not right.  I also learned the movement came from Catholics having hands laid on them by neo-Pentecostals to receive something that was not happening in the Catholic Church.  

The term Catholic Charismatic is literally an oxymoron to me - and the fact that the Vatican confirms it as legit seems like heresy, as they are then confirming people had to go outside the Catholic Faith to receive the Spirit.

As a newer Catholic I feel like a protestant all over again - having to figure out within the Catholic Church what was right and wrong.

It can be confusing, but my understanding of Catholic has always been the adherence to Church teachings and papal authority.  Even while the Charismatic Catholic movement seems more protty than Catholic, they follow Catholic teaching regarding transubstantiation, BVM, and papal succession/authority, in contrast to the beliefs of a more Catholic appearing Anglican church that has a reverent service, yet follows none of the above.

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil
