YOUCAT by Ignatius Press is short for Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is the official catechism for World Youth Day. Written for high-school age people and young adults, YOUCAT is an accessible, contemporary expression of the Catholic Faith.
The popular format includes:
Margin pictures and illustrations
Summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations
Quotes from the Saints and other great teachers
What's more, YOUCAT by Ignatius Press is keyed to the Catechism of the Catholic Faith, so people can go deeper. It explains:
What Catholics believe (doctrine)
How they 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. After the Bible, YOUCAT will likely become the "go-to" place for young people to learn the truth about the Catholic faith.
Pope Benedict XVI wrote the foreword; Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, the editor of YOUCAT by Ignatius Press and the Archbishop of Vienna, Austria, wrote the afterword.
Excerpts from the Foreword by Pope Benedict XVI:
Study this Catechism!
This is my heartfelt desire.
Study this Catechism
with passion and perseverance.
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....
You need to be more deeply rooted in the faith
than the generation of your parents...
