NCR seeks new Young Voices columnists

 | 

The National Catholic Reporter is looking for writers under the age of 30 to join our weekly online Young Voices column.

Young Voices writers pen a 1,000-word column once every six weeks or so as part of a rotation with other columnists. Topics are up to the author, but pieces with a religious bent are preferred. (This does not always mean strictly Catholic reflections; wider Christian reflections or thoughts on spirituality are also acceptable.)

Can the old-movement spirit power the new Francis movement?

 | 

Sixty years ago, the kind of lively Gospel Christianity Pope Francis talks about today was flourishing in the U.S. and 25 other countries. It was achieved through the so-called "movements" -- the Young Christian Workers (YCW), the Young Christian Students (YCS) and the Christian Family Movement (CFM). Small groups from parishes or schools were gathering regularly to examine various problems of life in their own areas, like poverty, politics, racism or culture. They would then discuss how a particular issue relates to Gospel values.
