THE WORLD NEEDS MORE NAZARITES
Lots of people think not shaving for the good of others is a recent trend – it’s not. The Christian and Hebrew traditions are filled with men who set themselves apart by not shaving. Samson, Paul, and many others lived as Nazarites – either temporarily or for their entire life.
Nazarites are men who set themselves apart and dedicate themselves to the Lord in three ways: abstaining, avoiding impurity and not shaving.
We think the world could use a few more Nazarites, and this November we want you to be one of them.
IT TAKES COMMITMENT
We’ve built this challenge around 5 commitments related to community, prayer, beards, abstaining and evangelizing. Taking the Nazarite Challenge means embracing all 5 of these commitments as explained below.
This is not going to be easy, but if Samson can slay a thousand Philistines with the jawbone of an ass, surely you can do this.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Taking on a commitment like this is not easy, and it’s not one you should do alone. Which is why we want to help.
When you sign up to take the Nazarite Challenge, we’re going to invest in your success by:
Connecting you with other men around the world who are taking on this challenge.
Providing you with the official Nazarite Challenge prayer, so that we can pray in solidarity with one another.
Sending you reflections and encouragement multiple times a week from Catholic priests, brothers, and laymen.
Leading the exchange of real world ideas for living out and sharing the faith in your daily life.
THE 5 COMMITMENTS
We’re doing this together as one community. We’ll be sharing our challenges and successes together as men. Sign up below to join the community.
Spend time in prayer each day for your own spiritual health and interceding for the spiritual and physical health of all men.
During the month of November, letting your beard grow will be a physical sign of your commitment.
Pick something to give up during November and strive to avoid things that lead you into sin.
Our baptismal call is to share the Gospel, and this November we’re committing to taking the call more seriously.
