Who Me?

Papa sat there in his chair wondering. He wondered if it were not possible for a man to understand a good and loving God better than he understood human nature.


“We have met the enemy, and he is us.” This great quote is attributed to Admiral Oliver Perry in 1813 upon defeating the Royal Navy in the Battle of Lake Erie. It has been echoed many times over the years because it seems to say something about who we are as people.

Do you ever find yourself wishing you had not done something? Do you ever feel as if you could just kick yourself because you keep making the same mistakes again and again? Do you wish you could do better and yet, somehow, feel like you never will? if you answered yes to any of those questions (or all of them), don’t give up on yourself. You are not alone — and you certainly are not a human disaster!


It might sound like a trite cliché, but Jesus really is the answer. In the Bible we learn that Jesus gives us something called the Holy Spirit. The Bible refers to the Holy Spirit in many different ways. Among them are “friend” and “helper” and “counselor.“

Maybe all you need today is a trusted friend. Maybe you just need someone who will be there to help you and provide some good counsel when you need a little wisdom.


Don’t give up on yourself. Take a few minutes to ask Jesus for help. Ask him to give you the gift of the Holy Spirit.


It’s cool to be Catholic. COOL2B!

In Christ.
