From the author:
Advance Praise for "Young and Catholic: The Face of Tomorrow's
"There's a whole new generation of saints-in-the-making at the
cutting edge of a major revival in the Catholic Church today, and
this book tells their story."
- Leon Suprenant, president, Catholics United for the Faith
"Young and Catholic is a much needed hope-filled book for these
transitional times. It is filled with "Good News" about the future
of the Church – stories of prayerful families yielding fruit,
burgeoning seminaries and convents, young people resisting the
current by leading active devotional lives. Tim Drake sees a
revitalized Church of the future."
- Tom Allen, president, CatholicExchange.com
"Magnificent! In the midst of widespread confusion about what it
means to be a faithful Catholic, God has blessed the Church with
these courageous young men and women who have independently sought
and embraced the splendor of Christ! This book gives hope to even
the weariest of souls."
- Patrick Reilly, executive director, Cardinal Newman Society
"Young Catholics giving up on the Church? Don't believe it, says Tim
Drake. In Young and Catholic: The Face of Tomorrow's Church he
supplies an exciting and--dare I say it?--edifying portrait of
vibrant young people proud and happy to accept the challenge of
being Catholic. Now the challenge for us older Catholics is to leave
them a Church that lives up to their expectations."
- Russell Shaw, journalist, Our Sunday Visitor and Columbia
Patrick Reilly, Cardinal Newman Society
This book gives hope to even the weariest of souls."
Leon Suprenant, Jr. Catholics United for the Faith
Young and Catholic shows that the Pope's vision for a new springtime of faith
is in fact being realized.
Matt Pinto, author, Did Adam and Even Have Belly Buttons
Young and Catholic is a great gift to the Church during the turbulent times
in which we live.

In your parish, the Church may be graying at the temples, but elsewhere —
across America and around the world — young Catholics are ushering in a new
springtime of faith and vitality for the Church you and I love.
Here veteran Catholic journalist Tim Drake introduces you to some of the
surprising ways in which the Holy Spirit is working in the hearts of these
Catholic young people today.
You’ll meet teen groups dedicated to Christian service, to prayerful
devotion, and to living a life of chastity. There are twentysomethings working
together to deepen their knowledge of the Faith, to spread the gospel here and
overseas, and to promote the Church’s teachings on marriage and the family.
Drake brings news of vibrant religious orders burgeoning with young members
on fire for the Faith. He takes you into cyberspace, where web-savvy Catholics
are using the Internet to evangelize secular culture. He reports from the
epicenter of the Catholic youth movement — World Youth Day — where hundreds of
thousands of young people gather to pray together and to show their love for the
Pope and their devotion to Christ.
The evidence is clear: we are living in a time of vigorous spiritual renewal,
and young Catholics are leading the way. Do not be afraid! Young and Catholic
demonstrates that for the Church, the future is bright. These young people
are one of the many reasons that’s so.
