Pope Francis is making history today, becoming the first pontiff to address the Super Bowl in a video message. The video message aired in the stadium during the game, but can also be viewed online below!
“Great sporting events like today’s Super Bowl are highly symbolic, showing that it is possible to build a culture of encounter and a world of peace.
“By participating in sport, 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.
“May this year’s Super Bowl be a sign of peace, friendship and solidarity to the world.
