In an age of the world marked by despair, sin, and unbelief, the young people are searching for answers. These are answers the Catholic Church holds in Her teachings. Answers to the very meaning of life and the means of obtaining "the peace of Christ, which surpasses all human understanding."

The mission of Overt Network is to bring the Truth, beauty and goodness of the Catholic Faith to the young people of the world in a way that is relevant, engaging, and meaningful. The message of Overt Network can be summed up in the modified words of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen:

Life is (still) Worth Living.

Formatting Guidelines

Blog Length

Blog must be between 500 and 700 words.

If your topic or blog requires additional text to be effective, break it into two separate blogs. Do not write Part 1 and Part 2, rather format each blog to stand alone as a complete thought.

Blog Title

The ideal length for blog titles is between 7 and 13 words. Keywords should be as close to the beginning of the blog title as possible.

For example, if a person were to search for the term "Catholic teaching on contraception" then the keywords "Catholic," "Teaching," and "Contraception" would be one of the most important factors in Google returning blog posts in response to that search.

For that Google search, a highly effective blog title would be "Catholic Contraception Teaching: 3 Things Humanae Vitae Tells Us."
