THE WORLD NEEDS MORE NAZARITES
In Hebrew tradition, Nazarites set themselves apart and dedicated themselves to the Lord in three ways: abstaining, seeking virtue and not shaving.
Samson, Paul, and many others lived as Nazarites – either temporarily or for their entire life.
We think the world could use a few more Nazarites, and this November we want you to be one of them – but don’t worry, we’ve modified those original commitments.
IT TAKES COMMITMENT
We’ve built this challenge around 5 commitments related to community, prayer, abstaining, virtue, 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 in online community with other women 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 women and men.
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 women. Sign up below to join the community.
Including a daily decade of the rosary focusing on the specific virtue of that day. In addition, spend time in prayer each day for your own spiritual health and interceding for the spiritual and physical health of all women.
Remove one element from your daily beauty regimen for the month of November (mascara, lipstick, nail polish, manicures, etc.). Offer this sacrifice for others struggling with sin and temptation and to help focus on true beauty that comes from within.
Add an act of virtue to your routine based on that day’s virtue. Spend time journaling the act each day. Practicing these virtues will help you slowly be transformed more fully into the image and likeness of the heart and mind of Jesus and Mary.
Our baptismal call is to share the Gospel, and this November we’re committing to taking the call more seriously.
