Truth Himself is found in the Catholic Church, literally. I didn’t go looking for truth. God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost found me, and They are looking for everyone. Some cannot answer yes because of invincible ignorance. This is true of Jews and Muslims, whose families will not permit an affirmative answer, and they cannot overcome family. I understand that because I could not overcome my mother’s opposition to religious life, but keep trying.
Self-help books are bs. They are written by people who want to make money. Memoir is a different genre, though I would not assign memoir to a student. For help, take yourself to a priest and, if need be, a psychiatrist who is a practicing Catholic and will correctly prescribe, including confession.
Do that in private. A pope or anyone else making a public apology for something that happened 10 trillion years ago is heartwarming to the dead and a ploy.
If and when I arrive in heaven, after asking to see my parents, my brother, and Chopin, I will ask for the high tenor voice at 7 mins (don't bother with the lyrics)
