Thank you for your concern. Capitalizing a pronoun referring to God or Jesus is completely unnecessary and shows no greater reverence than not capitalizing it. It is a grammatical convention invented by someone somewhere, but not one that has made its way into any official texts of the Catholic Church. The New American Bible (and nearly all Bible translations, Catholic or not) does not capitalize pronouns referring to our Lord and we have chosen to adopt the same style.
