Teenagers often express themselves through the messages on the T-shirts they wear.

So it was fitting that T-shirts that captured thoughts about the Catholic faith were once again among the most popular souvenirs for the 23,000 teenagers who attended the National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis on Nov. 21-23.

Here are six of the Catholic “messages” that were displayed on T-shirts at the conference:

“Keep Calm and Offer It Up.”

“Lifeguard. Mine Walks on Water.”

“Got Mystery? Joyful. Luminous. Sorrowful. Glorious.”

“Thou shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor’s Wi-fi.”

“Who’s your hero?” (T-shirt showed a lone image of Christ on the cross.)

“Can’t Beat the Real Thing—The Catholic Church.” †
