ADDRESS OF POPE JOHN PAUL II
TO MEMBERS OF THE KRAKOW SPORTS CLUB

Tuesday, 4 January 2005

 

I offer a cordial greeting to you all. I am pleased to welcome the representatives of this famous club, which for 100 years has been part of the scene in our city.

I know that during this century there have been splendid years, but there have also been difficult periods. I am pleased to hear that recent years have brought success upon success. I hope they will constantly increase.

May Krakow bear witness that by forming characters and teaching the nobility of competition and solidarity in effort, sports can be an expression of the highest human and social values.

God bless you!
