Pope Says Sundays for God, Not Sports

But I’m sure he is still a Redskins fan. Honest!

“When Sunday loses its fundamental meaning and becomes subordinate to a secular concept of ‘weekend’ dominated by such things as entertainment and sport, people stay locked within a horizon so narrow that they can no longer see the heavens,” the pontiff said in a speech to Australian bishops.

John Paul criticized the “culture of the ‘here and now,'” urging Church leaders to “lead men and women from the shadows of moral confusion and ambiguous thinking.”

The 83-year-old pope also encouraged Christians, especially young people, to remain faithful to Sunday Mass, saying the secular culture was undermining family life.

Of course he’s right. If you want to watch the game, go to an earlier (or later) Mass or service. But go to church on Sunday, ’cause if you don’t the Skins just might lose that day – and it’ll be your fault!!!
