Restoration Radio presents its own version of a "Super Bowl Sunday" special: "Sports Build Character? Part 1."
We have all heard this, but is it so, or is there more to it? In today's modern world, sports has been placed on a lofty pedestal of central importance in the lives of modern men. TV, radio, and internet provide 24/7 wall-to-wall coverage of everything imaginable related to sports and atheletes. Children idolize athletes and aspire from a young age to play sports, well into their adult years. Many view it as a way towards success in life. What is the Catholic view of sport, what is its place in our lives, and how are we as Catholics to view a society which is saturated in sports? Has sport taken on a religious context of its own, and are there religious parallels with what modern sports have become?
Join us as host Stephen Heiner discusses this looming giant of a topic with His Excellency, Bishop Daniel Dolan and Father Anthony Cekada of St. Gertrude the Great Catholic Church in Westchester, Ohio.
