Is there anything more important in the world than helping young people encounter Jesus Christ and discover the joy of being His disciple?
Young people need to have a place of priority in the Church's mission of evangelization. Pope Francis reminds us of this great truth: "Each young person's heart should thus be considered 'holy ground,'..." (Christus Vivit, #66)
The only way to effectively shape the lives of young people is to fall deeply in love with Christ.
In "Jesus Himself Drew Near," Fr. Jack Peterson develops a plan to do just that. In particular, he speaks to those who shape the lives of young people.
