As the Pastoral Minister for Athletics:
We begin the 2011-2012 school
year with exciting news that advances our mission as a
Blessed John Paul II said, “Jesus Christ is the answer to every human question”. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is at home in every culture and environment including athletics. In recent years there have been greater efforts in the Catholic community to bring Gospel into athletics.
The Second Vatican Council taught in the document Gaudium et Spes, “Christ fully reveals man to himself and brings to light his most high calling.” With this same sense of joy and hope, Dan will endeavor to expand the virtue program beyond football and into every athletic endeavor of this Catholic school.
I pray Dan will echo these
words of Blessed John Paul II spoken to young people, "Ask yourselves, young people, about the love of Christ.
Acknowledge His voice resounding in the temple of your heart. Return His bright
and penetrating glance which opens the paths of your life to the horizons of
the Church’s mission. It is a taxing mission, today more than ever, to teach
men the truth about themselves, about their end, their destiny, and to show
faithful souls the unspeakable riches of the love of Christ. Do not be afraid
of the radicalness of His demands, because Jesus, who
loved us first, is prepared to give Himself to you, as well as asking of you.
If He asks much of you, it is because He knows you can give much."
— Pope John Paul II (The Meaning of Vocation)
