World Cup Soccer!

Popes, flags

The last few days we have seen pictures like this one all over the place. I think they are great, especially because we know Pope Francis is a big football (soccer) fan. He even belongs to the San Lorenzo Football Club of Buenos Aires. On the other hand, Pope Emeritus is not a soccer fan, which makes the pictures even funnier!

 

But what is truly important is what Pope Francis tells us about the World Cup and sports in general: “It is not only a form of entertainment but also a tool to communicate the values that promote the good of the human person and help to build a more peaceful and fraternal coexistence,” especially in our world today.  I wish both teams all the best in the finals tomorrow.
