Dear Catholic.com visitor: Summer is here, and you may be thinking about a well-deserved vacation, family get-togethers, BBQs with neighborhood friends. More than likely, making a donation to Catholic Answers is not on your radar right now. But this is exactly the time we most need your help. The “summer slowdown” in donations is upon us, but the work of spreading the gospel and explaining and defending the Faith never takes a break. Your gift today will change lives and save souls for Christ this summer! The reward is eternal. Thank you and God bless.

Matt Marsden is a Catholic Hollywood actor, who spoke at World Youth Day 2011 urging young Catholics to get involved in movie-making and other artistic ventures in order to change the culture. Marsden has starred in movies such as Black Hawk Down and Transformers. He took part in a panel discussion on the subject of faith and entertainment at Madrid’s Palacio de Deportes: it is the culture that young people are growing up in that most concerns Marsden, and the lack of impact that Catholicism has upon the movie making process in Hollywood. “There’s not going to be anything left if we don’t fight,” he added. “Pope John Paul was so explicit about… getting involved in culture and movies – and at the moment we’re not.” Marsden also stressed the importance of prayer and the sacraments for inspiration and healing.
