EXTON, Penn., June 21, 2021 /Standard Newswire/ -- In "Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation," Catholic evangelists Fr. Josh Johnson and Mari Pablo present Jesus Christ's healing message as the antidote to all social division. The co-hosts pull from Scripture, Catholic Church teaching, the lives of holy men and women, and interviews with Catholic social justice leaders to cast a vision for human society steeped in both God's justice and his mercy.
Fr. Josh and Mari Pablo are joined in their presentations by an incredible team of evangelists and Catholic leaders including Chika Anyanwu, Bob Lesnefsky, Paul J. Kim, the Sisters of Life, and more.
"Connected" focuses on five different aspects of Catholic social teaching, each a challenging and complex topic close to the heart of many teens:
- God's Creation and Stewardship
- The Dignity of Human Life
- Solidarity, Race, and Responsibility
- Poverty and the Dignity of Work
- Family: The Foundation of Society
"This program is meant to help us fulfill the desires of Jesus that He gave to us in the Gospels," explains Fr. Josh. "Namely, to love God and neighbor – especially in the poorest of the poor and the most vulnerable."
"Then, what the teens learn from the program can be shared with others," adds Mari Pablo. "That will spark fruitful conversation, and through the guidance of the Holy Spirit they will use their own voices, go out, take action, and evangelize."
Young people are passionate about making the world a better place. "Connected" shows teens that the Catholic Church can be a trustworthy leader in the social justice conversation, offering the clarity and truth they are craving.
