    I’ve noticed on this site that words referring to Jesus and His name aren’t capitalized. I mean words such as He, His, and so forth. Please, out of respect to Jesus’s name, capitalize these words. It means a lot to me and it bothers me a lot when a Catholic site doesn’t acknowledge this error. Thank you and God bless you!

    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.
