Tim Drake calls my attention to his new book Young and Catholic.
In Young and Catholic, you'll learn:
- That contrary to common belief, young Catholics are not distant from the Church, but are actively engaged in it, often in ways not easily seen by those in the pews.
- How young adults across the country gather in urban bars, not to drink but to learn about their faith.
- How the priesthood is attracting young and vibrant priests.
- How the young are involved in a Church without borders, using the Internet to connect with their peers and evangelize the secular culture.
- Why millions of youth have gathered to pray together and show their love for the Pope and their devotion to Christ.
Surely a book that'll strike fear in the hearts of the National Catholic Reporter. ;-)
I haven't had the opportunity to read it yet, but having already received the endorsements of Amy Welborn, Mark Shea, Sherry Weddell (Catherine of Siena Institute), James V. Schall, S. J., Russell Shaw and a host of your fellow St. Blog's Parishioners, I'm adding it to my reading list.
