Millennial is an online journal and blog written by Millennial Catholics offering "world-class Catholic opinion and analysis on the most pressing issues of our times in politics, religion, and culture."[1] The authors, described as "quite an impressive group of commentators,"[2] are said to "perfectly weave together current events and the Catholic intellectual tradition" and are adept at "finding real-world practicality to Catholic theology."[2]

Called "an online home to Catholic writers in their 20s and 30s,"[3] the site seeks to "amplify the voices of a younger generation and provide insight and analysis on the issues that matter to this generation."[1] There is no precise definition of when the Millennial generation began, but all Millennial writers were all born during the pontificate of Saint John Paul the Great.[1]

It has been said that Millennial "perfectly represents the future of young intellectuals in the church"[2] and Michael Sean Winters of the National Catholic Reporter has encouraged his readers to "regularly consult the writings of these fine young Catholic thinkers."[4] Journal articles and blog entries from Millennial have been cited in places such as Commonweal,[5] Religion News Service,[6][7] U.S. Catholic,[8] and elsewhere.
