YOUCAT: Youth Catechism

Ignatius Press

YOUCAT is short for "Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church," which was launched on World Youth Day, 2011. Developed with the help of young Catholics and written for high-school age people and young adults, YOUCAT is an accessible, contemporary expression of the Catholic Faith. 

The appealing graphic format includes Questions-and-Answers, highly-readable commentary, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations and inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from Saints and others in the margins. What's more, YOUCAT is keyed to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, so people can go deeper.

------------------

The YOUCAT explains the following:

-- What Catholics believe and why (doctrine)
-- How Catholics celebrate the mysteries of the faith (sacraments)
-- How Catholics are to live (moral life)
-- How they should pray (prayer and spirituality)

The questions are direct and honest, even at times tough; the answers straightforward, relevant, and compelling. YOUCAT will likely become the "go-to" place for young people to learn the truth about the Catholic faith. Illustrated.

Please allow an additional 1-2 weeks for delivery of orders with 100+ books.

What is the Catholic Church? - Booklet

What is the Catholic Church? - Booklet

Many people are puzzled by the idea of the Church, and especially by the claims of the Catholic Church. This booklet shows the Catholic Church’s special place in God’s plan for humanity; how Jesus Christ founded his Church and guides it throughout history; how he is present with us, especially through the sacraments; and how he guides and teaches us through its official leaders. The Catholic Church is a home for all, for saints and for sinners, and only in this home can we discover all the gifts that Christ wants to share with us.

 

Bible Basics for Catholics

Bible Basics for Catholics

From biblical scholar Dr. John Bergsma — two-time "Teacher of the Year" from Franciscan University of Steubenville, OH — comes this fresh, fun, and authentically Catholic introduction to the "big picture" of salvation history.

This overview of the Bible is based on Bergsma's widely popular introduction to theology course at Franciscan University of Steubenville. Bergsma combines sound theology, academic expertise, pastoral wisdom, and an endearing playfulness to draw readers into the connection between the great stories of the Bible and salvation in Jesus.

Seven Deadly Sins - Seven Lively Virtues

Seven Deadly Sins - Seven Lively Virtues

Join noted Professor of Theology and author, Fr. Robert Barron, in this revealing presentation as he sheds light on the Seven Deadly Sins - those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our relationship with God and others - and the antidote to them, the Seven Lively Virtues! Fr. Barron uses Dante's DIVINE COMEDY to expose these sinful patterns in our lives and show how they are effectively counteracted by the cultivation of virtue through the development of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This fascinating journey shows the path that God has designed to lead us to health, happiness and holiness.

 

Absolutely wonderful! I love how Fr. Barron gives practical ways to use the information he’s presenting. Nancy - Warroad, MN

We Must Go Out: the Sacrament of Confirmation

We Must Go Out: the Sacrament of Confirmation

It is through the Sacrament of Confirmation that a Catholic is fully initiated into the Church. Why then do so many newly confirmed Catholics never come back? In this talk, Fr. Mike Schmitz addresses this concerning trend in the Catholic Church with honesty, energy, and humor. Focusing on the true nature of Confirmation, Fr. Mike challenges ALL Catholics to see this sacrament not as a "graduation" from the Church, but as a commissioning by the Holy Spirit to go out into the world and proclaim the Gospel.

 

"I wish I had heard this talk before I was confirmed." Chris - LA

Saint John Paul The Great - Book

Saint John Paul The Great - Book

A French novelist once wrote, “Tell me what you love, and I will tell you who you are.” Although there are countless ways to study Saint John Paul the Great, the most direct route is by entering the man’s heart.

Discover the five greatest loves of Saint John Paul II, through remarkable unpublished stories about him from bishops, priests who organized his papal pilgrimages, his students in Poland, Swiss Guards, and others. Mining through a mountain of papal resources, Jason Evert has uncovered the gems and now presents the Church a treasure chest brimming with the jewels of the saint’s life. Rekindle your own faith by learning what (and who) captivated the heart of this great saint.

 

"This book has provided me with spiritual insights that I am certain will stay with me for years to come. I highly recommend it every chance I get!" Tim - Downer's Grove. IL

Customer Comments


This is very good for late converts and young people
It really helped explain the Catholic Catechism in a way young adults would be able to understand which is so incedibly important to our generation. Allyson - Pennsauken, NJ
I love the layout and just how non-intimidating it is to read. I love the simplicity and just how approachable it looks and feels. I love the appeal it has to the youth and I think it's an excellent tool for not just young catholics, but for all :) Krystle - Farmington Hills, MI
This is perfect for people my age. I'm 23 and to have a Catechism with clear answers to the issues we face everyday is priceless. Plus, if it's good enough for Pope Benedict XVI then its good enough for me!!! James - VA
YOUCAT has helped me develop my faith and has guided me on my journey home to The Church. I've found the fact that it used clear language and had a great layout etc. really useful. Youcat had the answers to questions that popped into my head and it was really great for defending the faith when people made accusations, I simply could tae out the youcat and 'POW!' (in a charitable way of course). My friends liked the fact that if they wanted to ask me a question (or even an accusation) that I could help give them a clear and straightforward answer/response, using youcat as the hard copy in front of me and using my own knowledge to back things up. It's been such as handy tool! Mark
It was very reaffirming and a good review of Faith formation. Good for youth and adults Springfield, MN
