T-shirt messages vividly express Catholic faith

By John Shaughnessy

Teenagers often make fashion and social statements with the T-shirts they wear.

At the National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis on Nov. 17-19, T-shirts that captured thoughts about the Catholic faith were naturally among the most popular souvenirs for the 23,000 teenagers who attended.

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

  • “He died for me. I live for him.”
  • “Cool to be Catholic.”
  • “Catholicism is not a spectator sport.”
  • “DORK—Disciple of the Risen King.”
  • “God has assigned as a duty to every man … the dignity of every woman.”—Pope John Paul II
  • “Catholic Church. Refreshing our faith since 33 A.D.”
