Is God on the gridiron, and can we find the Lord at the 50-yard line?
Sports are a major part of the human experience, whether we’re on the field or watching the Sunday game from the comfort of our couch.
Father Frank Berna, O.F.M. of La Salle University’s religion and theology department shares with producer Gina Christian how athletes and fans alike can encounter the divine through sports — and how we can transfer our game-time enthusiasm to Sunday worship.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
