Vatican Releases First Document on Young People

Youth

Released this week, "Christus Vivit" is the first-ever Vatican document on young people.

It begins, "With great affection, I address this Apostolic Exhortation to all Christian young people. It is meant to remind you of certain convictions born of our faith, and at the same time to encourage you to grow in holiness and in commitment to your personal vocation. But since it is also part of a synodal process, I am also addressing this message to the entire People of God, pastors and faithful alike, since all of us are challenged and urged to reflect both on the young and for the young. Consequently, I will speak to young people directly in some places, while in others I will propose some more general considerations for the Church's discernment."

The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) reflects on the letter in this article, focusing in on three important takeaways. Read another great summary from the St. Louis Review, or read the entire letter here.
