YouCat now the bestselling Catholic book in the world


YouCat the Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, has become the top-selling Catholic book in the world.

It is published by CTS in the UK and Ireland over 15,000 copies have been sold since March  2011.

In the U.S, it is now the number one Catholic book and all this is contributing to a total of 1.7 million copies sold across the globe.

Beginning with its distribution at World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid, YouCat is finding its place among the various tools that can help explain the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church in a clear and comprehensible way.

It will surely be a great help for the extra catechesis and other activities that will be planned for the upcoming Year of Faith too.

  1. This is the saddest news I have heard in a long, long time. With the whole treasure-trove of brilliant Catholic literature and superior catechisms available, this watered-down theology find itself the number one “seller”.

    If we look at passing the Faith along to future generations, this couldn’t be more tragic. If anyone reading this wants a heady dose of real Catholic thinking (and history) I humbly suggest THE MONSTROUS REGIMENT by Christopher Hollis, which details the Elizabethan moves to crush the Faith in England. It has more doctrine and truth in it than you will find in a hundred modern catechisms.

      O, come on Dan, don’t be so negative. YCat cannot contain the full richness of the Holy Wisdom which is Catholicism, no more than the Catechism of the Catholic Church can. But each is a marvellous, condensed introduction. A starter pack. Each is aimed at different types of readership. They are wonderful books and are having an enriching impact on significant sectors of the Church. I only wish even more copies had been sold to date.

      Dan, by all means encougage towards future excellence but at the same time appreciate the good which is now. Why so much carping. Lets all move on together.

  2. Hey! It SHOULD be the best! I am 56 and I LOVE YouCat……..!!!!
