A Slide Tackling Priest

It is not often that a news story combines my passions for soccer with Catholicism. So the news that New England Revolution defender Chase Hilgenbrinck has retired from Major League Soccer to join the seminary is welcome news. America may lose a defender, but the Church gains a priest.

You have to prayfully wish him well, he follows in great company. John Paul II was a goalkeeper, somewhat apt as his job was saving souls.
