Here’s one book I plan on getting: YOUCAT, the Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church:
It seems to be a perfect catechism for young people. But frankly it looks pretty enjoyable for a forty-something like myself.
Pope Benedict XVI gives it a strong recommendation in his foreword:
So I invite you: Study this Catechism! That is my heartfelt desire. This Catechism was not written to please you. It will not make life easy for you, because it demands of you a new life. It places before you the Gospel message as the “pearl of great value” (Mt 13:46) for which you must give everything. So I beg you: Study this Catechism with passion and perseverance. Make a sacrifice of your time for it! Study it in the quiet of your room; read it with a friend; form study groups and networks; share with each other on the Internet. By all means continue to talk with each other about your faith.
YOUCAT is published by Ignatius Press. Get one soon…I’ll be getting mine!
