Catholic Stuff You Should Know
Christus vivit ('Christ is Alive') is a post-synodal apostolic exhortation of Pope Francis, written in response to the Fifteenth Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, on young people, faith and vocational discernment, held from 3 to 28 October 2018. It is addressed "to young people and to the entire people of God".
An apostolic exhortation is a magisterial document written by the pope.
It's essentially a pastoral message the pope sends out to Catholics to highlight key points about a particular issue. An apostolic exhortation establishes a clear direction for Catholics to critically address issues that are being discussed within the Church and in modern society.
Time of Mercy Art
From one of our ACT1V8 alumni, Time of Mercy Art is a small, Catholic art initiative inspired by Divine Mercy and Marian Consecration. The goal of the initiative and the little college student running it is to spread devotion to God's Divine Mercy and to His mother, Mary.
