Pope Foreword

Papst Franziskus
Dear children, Dear parents!

An 8-year-old boy from Canada once asked me the question: “What did God do before he created the world?” I thought about it and then replied: “Before God created anything, he loved. That’s what he did: he loved. God always loves. When he created the world, then, he didn’t do anything else except love.”

When flipping through the pages of YOUCAT for KIDS, I come across questions children ask their parents and catechists millions of times. That is why I consider this catechism as useful as the big Catechism, in which you can find answers to the most important questions of life: Where does this world come from? Why do I exist?

How and why shall we live here? What happens after death? YOUCAT for KIDS is a catechism very different from the one I used to have. YOUCAT for KIDS is suitable for children and parents to spend time together and, in doing so, discover God’s love more and more.
