Pope Cletus made history today by breaking from his predecessors Peter and Linus to address the Colosseum Games in an announcement. The message has already been delivered but will also be read during the games.
The historic message reads:
“Great sporting events like today’s Colosseum Games are highly symbolic, showing that it is possible to build a culture of encounter and a world of peace.
“By participating in sport, we are able to go beyond our own self-interest – and in a healthy way – we learn to sacrifice, to grow in fidelity and respect the rules.
“May this year’s Colosseum Games be a sign of peace, friendship, and solidarity to the world.
