What Pope Benedict XVI has to say about the YOUCAT project:p>"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." p>"YOUCAT combines sound catechesis and faith formation, based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, with a youthful, dynamic and graphically appealing presentation. I hope that this book and related resources will become tools to assist you and your pastoral collaborators in promoting the New Evangelization and a deepened catechesis among young people."
-Archbishop José Gómez, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles
"This book was developed by a common effort and it should create and foster community. A community that is not merely a congenial get-together but intends to be a community of faith, needs a common basis. YouCat can and should be a help in this regard."
-Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, editor of YOUCAT
-George Weigel, "Books for Christmas" in First Things p>"Compiled in an easy-to-use, intuitive format yet unashamedly bold in its proclamation of Truth, the new YOUCAT is a must-have for young and old alike. There has never been a Catechism quite like this one. It is perfect for anyone seeking to understand and explain the richness of our Catholic faith to today's modern culture!"
