Dear Friend of Catholic Answers:
When Pope Francis announced that he was going to World Youth Day, he said:
Young people must say to the world: To follow Christ is good . . . to go with Christ is good . . . the message of Christ is good . . . emerging from ourselves—to the ends of the earth and of existence, to take Jesus there—is good!
Pope Francis wants World Youth Day to be a life-changing experience for young people, not just a feel-good experience that leaves no lasting impact.
And Catholic Answers wants to help fulfill Pope Francis’s vision.
That’s why we’re releasing our new booklet How You Can Change the World.
It’s a dynamic resource designed to motivate and equip young people—and others—to make a difference for Christ.
We’ve shown the booklet to the official organizers of World Youth Day, and they got excited about how it can help young people.
Now they want to help Catholic Answers distribute it at the official catechetical sessions at World Youth Day.
This will help a huge number of young people.
There’s just one problem.
While the organizers of World Youth Day are anxious to help us distribute How You Can Change the World, they don’t have the budget to print it.
And, frankly, neither do we.
That’s why we need your help.
World Youth Day is only a few weeks away, and we need to get the booklet printed so that it will be ready in time for the event.
That means that we need to pay the printing costs associated with it.
I’m Jimmy Akin, and if you’re able to give $1 or more to help us help those at World Youth Day, we’ll send you a free copy of the new booklet How You Can Change the World.
If you’re able to donate $40 or more, we’ll send you five copies of the booklet, so that you can help others you know—and we’ll send you a copy of my special report Inside the Mind of Pope Francis.
Finally, if you’re able to donate $75 or more, we’ll send you those plus the fascinating new hardback book Pope Francis: His Life in His Own Words. In it, our new pope tells touching, humorous, and dramatic stories about his life—as well as revealing his thoughts on countless subjects important to the Church.
For whatever help you can offer, you have our sincerest thanks.
Catholic Answers needs your help, so please be generous.
