Kairos Global is a Catholic magazine for youth and young families, published by Jesus Youth – an International Catholic Movement approved by the Holy See.
The name, Kairos is an ancient Greek word that means, ‘opportune moment’. To a Christian, it is God’s anointed time – a special time of grace. As St. Paul says in 2 Corinthians 6:2, ‘See, now is the acceptable time (kairos); see, now is the day of salvation.’
After two decades’ publication of the Malayalam Kairos, there was felt a need for an English magazine that would not only unite Jesus Youth from across cultures and regions but which could be used as a tool to spread the Good News, the world over. It is from here Kairos Global took form.
Kairos Global is unique in various ways. This is the only Catholic magazine that focuses on youth and young families. It is put together in a simple format, with testimonies of teens, youth, and young families. Kairos tries to avoid preaching and attempts to present things in a contemporary tone, thus sharing the love of God.

Fr. Rajeev Philip Endorses Kairos Global
Bishop Mar Raphael Thattil Endorses Kairos Global
"I have been a reader of the Kairos Malayalam edition for some years in the past. It was very good to see the English Kairos Global – a much needed one for those in the mission. I greatly appreciate the content and its presentation. It is ‘appealing’ to youthful minds in many ways. The content is very informative and they carry the ‘thread of inspiration’ through the personal and down-to-earth testimonies. What is more striking is that the magazine represents a larger family of ‘committed and fervent evangelisers-by-example’. It carries an energy that enlivens every reader. May the efforts be blessed hundred fold by the Master and Lord Jesus!"
