From the Pope...

“May the game of soccer always be more of a means of teaching the values of honesty, solidarity and fraternity, especially among the younger generations.”

Soccer World Cup prayer

Almighty God, 
creator of all, as people from 
every nation gather with excitement 
and enthusiasm for the 2010 World Soccer 
Cup may South Africans be good hosts, our 
visitors welcomed guests and the players from 
every team be blessed with good sportsmanship 
and health. May your Spirit of fairness, justice and 
peace prevail amongst players and all involved. May 
each contribute in his own positive ways to prevent, 
control and fight crime and corruption, hooliganism of 
any kind and exploitation and abuse, especially of 
those most vulnerable. May those far away from 
home and those in their families find much joy 
in this occasion to celebrate the beautiful 
game of soccer and the beautiful 
game of life according to Your 
plan for the common good 
of all. Amen
