Suor Cristina Rocks, but Friar Gabriel Skates

Suor Cristina Rocks, but Friar Gabriel Skates November 14, 2014

After my post a few weeks ago about a Suor Cristina, the singing nun from Italy, I want to follow up with skateboarding friar.  Hat tip to Brandon Vogt, who posted a remarkable video about Friar Gabriel, an Australian Franciscan who is a serious skateboarder whose superiors asked him to use his skills to evangelize.   The post provides more details about the friar, but here is the video.  Friar Gabriel, besides skating, also provided the music.

This is not for everyone (and skateboarders are quick to detect posers) but I think this kind of evangelization is an excellent way to engage with modern culture.
