Pope Francis has met on a few ocassions with football players, encouraging them to act as role models, setting an example of loyalty, respect, and selflessness. “I have confidence,” he said, “in all the good you can do, especially among young people.” What better time to have a look at some brand new resources connecting sport, young people and faith.
These free and easy to use resources are designed to help explore the wider benefits that participating in sport can bring, and to encourage and celebrate the achievement of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual potential.
