Jesus Himself Drew Near: A Spirituality for Shaping the Lives of Young People
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.
