Openness About Mental Illness Makes College Football Players and Us Stronger Than Ever
All posts by Emanuel Werner, SJ
Originally from Columbus, Ohio (GO BUCKEYES!), Emanuel is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati (GO CATS!) and earned a graduate degree in counseling at the University of Dayton (GO FLYERS!). He finds himself reading all kinds of philosophy and, believe it or not, loves every minute of it! He enjoys good friends, good football (WHO DEY!), decent baseball (GO REDS!) and great hockey (GO JACKETS!). OK… he knows the Columbus Blue Jackets are not great yet but they will be! In the end, it is the life of Jesus Christ and the lives of the saints that inspire him most to do good in the world through the love of God and neighbor.
