I'm inclined to say yes. But at the same time, Jesus isn't present within me in terms of his bodily presence, so perhaps there's a distinction here that I'm missing?

Anyone know if Catholic theology addresses this?

As God, Jesus is omnipresent in the same ways God is. But He is not present everywhere in His human nature. Is that the distinction you needed?

Yeah, I had that in mind.

But the reason I asked is I seem to remember someone here saying that it would be incorrect to say Jesus existed before the Incarnation (or something to that effect). The second person of the Holy Trinity did. But Jesus existed at the Incarnation. So I thought perhaps some kind of subtle distinction might apply to his omnipresence as well.

This question is very practical for me. I've read spiritual books that say we should pray to God as being present interiorly within our souls. This made me wonder if we could pray to Jesus this way. For some reason I got it in my mind that perhaps it was heretical or erroneous to think this. So I just wanted to make sure by asking this.

You can do that. After the Incarnation, it's proper to refer to the Son as Jesus both in His Divinity and Humanity.

I believe God is omnipresent because of His Angels and the seven Spirits of God.

It's mentioned a few times in the Book of Revelation; Rev. 3:1 & 4:5 for example. I've never come across an explanation of exactly what it represents.
7 gifts of the H. S.?
7 Virtues?
Something else?

Maybe:

One lampstand with seven lamps is “My Spirit.” In other words, the lampstand with seven lamps is the God the Holy Spirit, with 7 eyes, sent to be Gods eyes on earth.

Peace always,
Stephen

If everything that Christ taught on earth were written, not even the world could contain the books. So where do we go to get the answers? We look at the information "With Open Eyes". We make sure all information accepted is in line with The Word, Jesus Christ in the eternal flesh that was present before creation face to face with God and the Holy Spirit, The Church. The Trinity.

Peace always,

Stephen
