[Notice: I still do the run-around, but excuse it with my own version of piety]
Question from the combox:
Okay, a random off-topic question. I have been out of Regnum Christi since 2009 -- February of that year, to be precise :-) - and I feel I have been slowly but surely regaining a Catholic identity that is not RC-formed.
One thing I have noticed is that I now use "Jesus" a lot more recently when referring to him.
I remember when I was in Regnum Christi, we always said "Christ." I don't think it was an official thing (or was it?) ... but it was definitely what we did.
Why was that? I remember it feeling "wrong" or "lesser" to say Jesus.
Am I the only one who noticed this?
A strange corollary: Where I live there are many enthusiastic liberal/dissenting Catholics and they tend to say mostly "Christ" too ... I think (just a theory) because it's a new-age category, so it gets beyond Jesus.
But we were Christ-centered, not Jesus-centered; we did exams on our love for Christ, not Jesus; we wanted to build Christ's kingdom not Jesus' kingdom.
Anyone else notice this? Any ideas why?
