A report came across the police scanner of a possibly “suicidal subject.”
Why, I asked a coworker, are there more reports like this here than anywhere else I’ve ever worked?
“Catholic guilt,” he said.
“What’s that?” I asked
It’s the feeling, he said, that no matter what you do, you can never be good enough.
Well, that’s true, I said, but isn’t that the point of grace?
