Catholics definitely see Jesus Christ as their savior. The catholic Mass is totally built around the salvific act of Jesus sacrificing Himself to save our souls. Actually, one criticism that protestants have against Catholics is that they don't deal directly with God but go through priests who administer the sacraments. Of course Catholics pray directly to God, but we also believe that God established His church with a hierarchy to help teach God's word and to administer sacraments, like Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist.
Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Mary, Our Mother, protect us under your mantle.
