Are you tired of feeling lost in your faith?
1.5 million young Catholics from around the world engaged in World Youth Day. Support for the magisterium of Pope Francis is high among youth.
But most online Catholic content and social celebrity culture feeds into ‘Big Catholicism:’
- preference for the institution over the person
- mania for rubrics over relationship
- difficulty with the synodal path
- reactionary response to doctrinal development
- does not read/understand Pope Francis
Few know what the Holy Father actually teaches.
Developments in Catholic thinking have struggled to reach people in accessible ways.
Mainstream Catholicism still fails to take seriously the urgency and practicality of renewal in education, catechism, and theology.
This causes concern, misunderstanding, and dismissal of the Gospel message.
We need to start solving this problem.
It’s ours to solve – not the hierarchy, not the academics, and not all the ‘professional Catholics.’
For the first time in history, grassroots firstresponders like you and me have the tech, time, and tools to do something.
We need to spearhead and support the cutting edge of smart, spiritual, education.
Because a smarter faith leads to a smarter life.
