I feel like I owe it to myself to really really research Catholicism and get stuff figured out so if anyone has any advice/wants to recommend some books, that would be very much appreciated!
I definitely recommend Youcat. It’s the Catechism of the Catholic Church but written in a way that is more understandable and less intimidating for us youth starting to learn about the Church. I also recommend the Catholic Faith Handbook for Youth, Third Edition. It explains a lot really clearly. We were given both these books for RCIA.
Also, I suggest you read something by Jason and Crystalina Evert, like How to Find Your Soulmate Without Losing Your Soul. It’s an amazing book about how to love and be loved. I cannot say it enough, it is an amazing book.
