Pope stresses importance of sport
Comment Email Print
 Pope Benedict pointed out the importance of sport during his general audience yesterday, which was attended by delegations from the executive committee of UEFA and from the Italian "Gioco Calcio" Federation with a large group of young people from 16 countries. The Holy Father said: "Your presence, gives me the opportunity to throw light on the importance of sport, a discipline which, if practiced in respect for the rules, becomes an educational instrument and a vehicle for important human and spiritual values. "May today's initiative also serve to revitalize in each of you the commitment to ensure that sport contributes to building a society characterized by mutual respect, loyalty of behaviour, and solidarity between peoples and cultures."
