GREETING OF THE HOLY FATHER FRANCIS
TO THE SOCCER TEAM OF THE CITY OF LA SPEZIA

Clementine Hall
Wednesday, 20 January 2021

[Multimedia]


 

Good morning! Good morning to you all.

First of all, congratulations, because yesterday you did well. Congratulations! In Argentina we dance the tango, and the tango is two-four music [based on  two-quarter time]. Today you are 4-2 [referring to the previous night’s victory], and that’s good. Congratulations, and keep going!

And thank you for this visit, because I like to see the effort of young men and women in sport, because sport is a wonder; sport “brings out” all the best that we have inside. Continue with this, because it leads you to a great nobility. Thank you for your witness.
