The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 24 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Each summer, Life Teen hosts several Steubenville Youth Conferences with the hopes of strengthening and inspiring teens and youth groups in their collective journeys to Christ.
We are offered a future full of hope. That future, however, will not simply arrive at our doorstep. We must co-labor with Christ as he speaks hope into this world. A future of hope starts with the youth of today. They are tomorrow’s prophets and apostles, developers and doctors, teachers and preachers, athletes and artists, mystics and martyrs. How they are shaped today will be how they shape tomorrow.
There are many women who are a vital part of salvation history and their stories are critical parts of Sacred Scripture. This scriptural devotion will inspire young women to raise their heads along with Mary, Martha, Lydia, and Esther and look into the eyes of Jesus, the God who loves deeply and perfectly.
You are going to make thousands of decisions today and one of them might change your life. Are you confident that what you want and what God want are the same thing? Don’t leave it up to chance - leave it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.

I’m declaring the riveting and flawless “Pawn Sacrifice” (the story of chess prodigy Bobby Fischer, played with acting genius by Tobey Maguire) the best film of 2015.

I sort of feel like this book should be like a paper town and only exist on paper.

Little Boy has made Montverde a serious filmmaker. And it might be the most important “Catholic-made” film since The Passion of The Christ.
THIS is where PBMC2 (yes, I went there) really shines. There is absolutely nothing I noticed to complain about, morally speaking. There are no nude scenes, there is no foul language, and there are no inappropriate scenarios. Nada. I would comfortably take my four year old nephew and my octogenarian grandmother and not feel the slightest bit uneasy.
The most poignant message is about empathy. There is real compassion for each character and their respective situations that undergirds the drama. Nobody feels like a cheap tool to advance the plot or proselytize a viewpoint. By providing an avenue for real success, Coach White offers his athletes a way out of the poverty cycle. But it is his athletes who inspire him with their incredible work ethic and family-first mentality.

Have you ever been so overwhelmed in your life that you felt hopeless, or like you were at the end of your rope? For sure life is a beautiful gift, but one of the things that make it so beautiful is the transitions from one point to another. Its where […]
Despite the quality of the production, St. Vincent seriously misses the mark as a morality tale. Vincent is basically a self-absorbed human being, with some serious vices, who occasionally does a few things right. He is a completely believable and empathetic character, but not a role model; and definitely not a saint.
The way Vincent is honored in the end is emotionally moving but also demeaning to real saints; let alone people who live thoroughly decent lives.
Why should we watch this film? First of all, in order to “go through” something of the refugee experience. Just think of Iraq and Syria and so many other places in the world where millions have been driven from their homes and their countries, cannot go back and are in limbo in every way imaginable.
Well-executed but lacking in emotional depth, The Maze Runner entertains as an exercise in action and suspense, but fails to transcend its genre and provide a truly memorial experience worthy of it’s planned sequel.
Tedious, uninspired, and emotionally detached, Godzilla makes for passable entertainment only for the most die-hard fans of large-scale disaster flicks. It’s a step up from its 1998 predecessor staring Matthew Broderick, but that bar was set so low that any director with five dollars and an iPhone could make a better film (admittedly that’s an untested hypothesis).
