Years ago I was approached by someone concerned to know if I had been "saved". I let her know that I was brought up Catholic, and attended Catholic school through 8th grade. Having attended Catholic mass at least 2 times per week for 12 years, probably averaged closer to 3x with holy days, I let her know that I was as “saved” as I was ever going to be.

Of course I wasn’t “saved” for her purposes and she wanted me to listen to her faith. I remember her saying she’d pray for me as I quickly walked away. This exchange maybe lasted a minute but decades later still seems fresh to me. Perhaps she prayed and I was indeed “saved”. Or not. But the need to convert others is a powerful part of being "saved".
