YOUCAT, the Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, is written in language suitable for young people and deals with the entire Catholic faith. The work is structured in Question-and-Answer format, and numbers after each answer refer the reader to the more extensive and in-depth treatments in the CCC. It discusses:
- 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 appealing graphic format includes highly-readable commentary, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations and inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from Saints and others in the margins. YOUCAT may be purchased online from Ignatius Press.
