 The follow-up and companion volume to the popular YOUCAT (Youth Catechism), was officially released at World Youth Day 2016 in Kraków, Poland.

DOCAT, says Pope Francis in the Introduction, "it is like a user’s manual that helps us to change ourselves with the Gospel first, and then our closest surroundings, and finally the whole world." Written by Experts and academics, with the encouragment of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, DOCAT guides young people in conscience formation and Catholic action on social and political issues. It shows them how to live Gospel values dealing with poverty, imbalance of wealth, employment and unemployment, the use of natural resources and environmental concerns, terrorism, immigration, among other topics.

The book, translated in many languages, was presented during the World Youth Day in Krakow and the APP is available on the major online APP-stores.
