I was watching a little football this weekend and thought of a number of reasons that Catholics should love football.
10) There’s a fair and a foul. There’s in and there’s out. Catholics believe in good and bad, good and evil. We’re used to drawing lines.
9) There are rules. Football has a rulebook. Catholics have the catechism. When in doubt if something is good or bad, check the Catechism.
8) While there are many people out on the field, there’s a few out there who dress a little differently and wear funny hats who have more authority to decide the rules. That one’s self explanatory ’cause you know, bishops and Cardinals dress a little differently.
