However, despite being advised otherwise, in my pride I left the Catholic Church, and essentially became a Baptist for about 7 years.

At least you didn't join the United Church! Oh, that's right. You said you 'had a very powerful conversion to Our Lord.' Too bad the UC doesn't have the same. :)

Dear Porkncheese,

What a clever name for a Portuguese, I love it!

Now go to church!

Deo Gratias!

Do we now have the gift of salvation or do we receive God's grace here?

At Baptism, we receive the gift of sanctifying grace, which makes us worthy to enter heaven. We lose sanctifying grace if we commit mortal sin, after which we must go to Confession and be absolved -- after which sanctifying grace is restored to us.

Is this part of the works that is required to keep our salvation? Or do we get our salvation when we first receive Christ in Holy Communion?

You are saved when, after a death in the state of sanctifying grace, you enter Heaven. No more, no less. After receiving Christ in Holy Communion, you have Him, but that doesn't guarantee your eternal salvation because you may still commit mortal sin and go to Hell.

When I read Mark's comment, a large light bulb went on over my head and I started laughing! :LOL:
