Real Life Catholic brings teens, college students, and parents to new life by proclaiming the best news in human history in a way that’s clear, relevant, and life giving.




Faith isn't one of the many components of life. It has everything to do with the happiness we were made for. Jesus didn't come to take away our "fun." In his own words, "I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete!" (John 15:11)


Catholics have risked their lives for thousands of years to be at Mass. For mere ritual? Nostalgia? Obligation? No. For the most intimate encounter we get with our Maker on this side of eternity, and to tap into the power we need to live the life we were made for.

Fr. Kapaun

When the story of human history comes to a close, death and violence don't get the final word. The love of God does. That love, burning bright in the heart of Fr. Emil Kapaun in the darkness of a POW camp in the Korean war, made him a hero.

Pope John Paul II

John Paul II, thank you for standing out like a light in the darkness of this generation, reminding us of who we are.
