Thanks but no thanks...Jesus said', Come unto Me'...That's where I went...
Jesus also said "this is my body" not "this is a symbol of my body," at the Last Supper. In the Catholic Church, Jesus reigns superior through the Eucharist ... that is to say, the "live"
Eucharist. He is *quite literally* the "sum and substance" of the faith. Whereas in the Protestant denominations, it is His Word alone that their faith is based upon, so the so-called "interference" from Mary could seem like a battle of sorts for importance, because nothing definitive seems to separate them. If all faiths came Home
to the Living Eucharist, then to love, honor, and adore Mary wouldn't be out of place for anyone.

My denomination is not a faith...We have no faith in our church...All our faith is in our risen Savior...
We have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ...There is nothing we could get out of putting a cracker in our mouths that would increase that personal relationship...
We have the same Spirit (part of the Trinity) within us that your popes claim to have guiding them and the same Spirit that raised Jesus to Heaven...
What's the point in a wafer that goes into and through your system in 20 minutes??? How does Jesus get from your intestines to your soul???
Well more than half of all Catholics don't believe that your wine and bread turns into the flesh and blood of Jesus...I'd guess many of you guys are Catholics because you were born into it and many more are Catholics because of the sense of the religious surroundings, ie, the priests with the robes, the beautiful building, paintings, chants, etc...
Our faith in Jesus is a simple faith...It is us, and Jesus...Can you have a relationship with Jesus without all that 'religion'???
