Take the Challenge - Cool and Holy!

Mike Tandy is "attempting to show the world you can be cool and holy!"

This young man is an example of the hope we can have for our youth. There are young men and women...teens...that are cool and holy, who think about life in the world to come and strive to live counter-culturally.

Via Facebook, a smart phone app and a Take The Challenge blog, Mike has created  a call to youth to engage. 

Engage in Eucharistic Adoration to find the answers you seek, engage in questioning the pablum that the film industry spews, and, as the app further describes...

Take the Challenge is a challenge to all teenage christians to become better christians. We all love taking challenges to do crazy things as teenagers, but can you accept this challenge?There is a challenge for every week. Start when ever and complete the challenge for that particular week with in a week. That simple.This app was designed by teenagers for teenagers.

I hope you will share this with the young people in your life and encourage them to engage in their faith. Almost 400 teens already are following the Facebook group, there is a community of support out there.
"Without fear we must set sail on the digital sea, facing into the deep with the same passion that has governed the ship of the Church for two thousand years...[W]e want to qualify ourselves by living in the digital world with a believer's heart, helping to give a SOUL to the internet's incessant flow of communication." ~ Pope Benedict XVI 
Thank you, Mike, for being a part of the Holy Father's vision....you are taking the challenge. May many others do likewise. I'm excited to follow your blog. God bless and use the Take the Challenge blog to encourage our youth to be cool and holy!
