The B.C. Catholic has a story by Chris Miller about a youth rally in the Archdiocese of Edmonton where students were challenged to "live faith dangerously:"
Danger may involve peril, adventure or taking risks, explained author Frank Mercadante, featured speaker at the annual archdiocesan youth rally.

“Danger is so much like a magnet in many ways. Danger can either draw us in or it can push us apart,” said Mercadante.

“When we watch extreme sports, the danger can draw us in. But when we watch senseless acts of violence or terrorism, those are dangers that actually push us away.”

Those different approaches to danger also apply to Catholics and their behaviours, he said, with many people demonstrating their faith in ways that are either positive or negative, compelling or repelling.
