Following the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Father Carlos Miguel Buela, founder of the religious family of the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE), has designed this book to be a point of reference for young people in order that they familiarize themselves with the Catechism and generously use it to deepen their faith. The Catechism for Youth goes through the Creed of the Catholic Church by addressing concerns and anxieties youth currently express, and incorporating inspirational words of our late Holy Father John Paul II towards young people. This book is a great tool for all who are involved in youth ministry.
Father Carlos Miguel Buela, IVE, was ordained a priest in 1971 in Argentina. From the beginning of his priestly vocation, he dedicated himself in a particular way to youth ministry, with the conviction that the Church must work with the youth by way of her vocation. He founded the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE) in 1984 and the Institute Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara (SSVM) in 1988, the feminine branch of the religious family of the "Incarnate Word." Both institutes enjoy active and contemplative branches, all sharing in the same charism of the evangelization of the culture. Presently, both institutes are present as religious missionaries in five continents, comprised of about 1,800 members and more than 270 houses around the world.
