Men Preparing for the Priesthood Using Their Bodies Well

A buddy of mine attends seminary at the North American College in Rome. Each year there is a soccer competition between all of the seminaries in Rome called the Clericus Cup. This year its final was covered by FoxSports.
Other than the awesomeness of being covered by a national news syndicate. These men and their formators were a great witness. Monsignor Claudio Paganni, President of the Clerius Cup, threw out the theology of body on a major news syndicate. "We are showing here how games and the body are values and not imitations ... The human body should used to give glory to God not for acts of deviance."
Such a great witness to the whole world and nobody was "copping a vicious headbutt when the ref's not looking."
