We, Catholics, are they who are saved by His Blood

I think that Catholics must lose a lot of weight being on the hamster wheel of works in order to get their salvation...
We believe that salvation is worth it. Don't you? 
Philippians 3

King James Version (KJV)

But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

DIS:I think you're right. Too bad that most won't get off of that wheel and accept the gift God has provided.

It is we who have accepted His gift and Protestants who have rejected it:
Acts 2:38

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in thename of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

It is sad to see that Jesus gave us such a wonderful gift at His have our sins covered by His approach the throne room of grace be SAVED by Him...and look at this. Completely ignored and back to OT works and law.
You are mistaken. We, Catholics, are they who are saved by His Blood:
1 Corinthians 10:16
The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

It is those who deny His Sacraments, ironically that means the Protestants, who will be saved according to your works. It is in the Sacraments that we present ourselves before God believing in His promises, by faith apart from our works. That does not mean by faith "alone". That means that those who keep the Law present ourselves before God to be justified in accordance to our faith:
Romans 2:13

King James Version (KJV)

13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

I wonder sometimes if the Lord just doesn't want to bang His head against the wall...(no disrespect to the Lord intended)
Yeah. It started when Luther broke away from the True Church and has become continually worse to this day.
