Pope Francis says Sports are an Opportunity for Fraternity and Growth

We want to give credit to Dave Baranowski, the Archdiocese Stewardship Education Director and friend, for bringing Pope Francis' sports reference to our attention.  Here is his prayer:

"Lord God, in sports and in life we seek a goal. This search – the search for the goal – is strenuous; it demands struggle, a commitment. And it is important not to run alone! In order to arrive, we must run together. We move forward together until we reach the goal. Then we celebrate! Help me live with the discipline necessary to attain my goal – eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen."
