Faith and the World Cup – a human response


After being horrified by Paul, the psychic octopus, and the magic Python, used as superstitious idols for World Cup I am pleased to have found a positive relationship between faith and football. As posted on CNA, Wesley Sneijder, who will play the final on Sunday and is one of the best players in the Cup so far, has recently converted to Catholicism. Alleged influences are his future Catholic wife, a model and actress, who taught Sneijder how to play, and his Inter Milan companion, and practicing Catholic, Javier Zanetti. Read the full article here.

The way Spain are playing though, it seems Sneijder’s prayers will need to be doubled for Sunday.
