France: Jeunes Cathos Blog, “Euro 2016” contest, an opportunity to evangelise”

“Euro 2016, an opportunity to evangelise” is the title of the photo contest launched on the “Jeunes Cathos” Blog, the blog of the French Catholic youth, to accompany the football challenge that, today more than ever, is dear to the hearts of all “Les Bleus” and European football fans alike. “The aim is to show that young Catholics in our country participate in this big event”, the organisers explain; and “it is a way to evangelise, recalling Christ’s words ‘you are in the world, but do not belong to the world”. To participate, one needs to submit “a good personal, creative picture” which depicts “a distinctive Catholic sign, such as a T-shirt from an organization, the WYD symbol, or which includes a reference to the faith in the context of a football match at Euro 2016”, that is, in a stadium, in a pub during a match, in a group of fans. All the photos submitted by 11 July will be posted to an album on the Facebook page of Jeunes Cathos. Besides the prize awarded by the jury, there will be a “social network special prize” for the picture with the most “likes”. Last but not least, not just for the French, but also for all football fans, WYD in Krakow will host “Copa Catolica”, a football tournament with 48 teams from 25 countries (26-27 July). The watchword for football players and supporters alike is to “put the works of mercy into practice”.
