Pope Francis’ Super Bowl LI Message

Is this the start of a new tradition?

“By participating in sports, we are able to go beyond our own self-interest and – in a healthy way – we learn to sacrifice, to grow in fidelity and respect the rules.” Hear that bit about respecting the rules, Brady? He’s talkin’ to you. #deflategate

Catholic News Agency has the full story here. Apparently it will be shown as a commercial during the game’s broadcast. New Evangelization for the win!

    When I first saw this, I thought it was a spoof, like Eye Of The Tiber. No, it wasn’t a spoof, but it was a joke. Amazing! The Church is in chaos because of his horrible mismanagement, yet he’s got time to do sports commentary!

  2. I know some Catholics might be upset by this (see earlier comments), but this was quite a good message from Pope Francis. Of course, it didn’t get shown for one reason: did the Vatican pay the massive licensing fees to use the Super Bowl (TM) name and logos?
