Who Jesus Is To Me

By Caroline Cecena

Our Divine Guardian

Many people, from Catholics to atheists, often tend to view Jesus as somewhat of an authorative leader of some sort. While Jesus Christ is indeed a very powerful and almighty leader, He is gentle, not harsh, and that is one of the most common misconceptions about Him. Jesus is the Holy Son of God¹, sent to us in order to help us reach eternal paradise. Jesus is not there to berate and lecture us when we make mistakes; instead he serves as a mentor on our pathway to heaven. Lots of Christians and Catholics can have a feeling of confusion and turmoil that is associated from being lost from the path God assigned to us. Jesus is our Divine Guardian, who helps us reach that goal of heaven throughout our lives, and who is always there to welcome us back to God's path.

Isaiah 42:6
