POPE FRANCIS: SPORTS, TRAINING GROUNDS OF VIRTUES!

ZENIT.ORG: Pope Francis encouraged this in his appeal toward the end of today’s General Audience in St. Peter’s Square this morning, recalling that today marks the Third International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, proclaimed by the United Nations.

“Sport is a universal language, which brings peoples close and can contribute to have individuals meet and overcome conflicts,” he reflected.

“Therefore,” Pope Francis continued, “I encourage you to live the sports dimension as a training ground of virtue in the integral growth of individuals and communities.”
