[quote=mommyjo2]Can anyone help me with why Catholics don’t 'accept Jesus as their Personal Lord and Savior"? I don’t mean, why don’t we think we are saved forever from one act, I mean, is there something intrinsically against Catholic teaching about Christ being a personal savior? Scripture, Church Fathers?
Why do Catholics not speak of a “personal” Jesus?
( I am not looking for a dissection on Evangelical Protestantism)
Of course we do. However we dont express it in the same way Protestants do.
Recently a new aqaintance asked me when I began my perosnal relationshiop with Jesus and i told him my when I was three weeks old my parents took me to a Priest who batpized me thus entering me into membership of the one true Church. As far as a personal relationship with Jesus I couldnt have a more personal one-I get to hold him in my hands every morning and get to follow his admonition to eat his body and drink his blood . I know those werent the anwers he expected but he was at a loss for words for several seconds!
