In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, we wanted to share a bit of our "experience" playing football. In this video, you will witness what we learned from a dear priest-friend about the virtue of fortitude through the analogy of football. Using the technique "repel and drive," we represent literally the need to "repel" off the temptations of the devil and use that momentum to "drive" forward towards Christ. Also, when we do fall because of sin, we must always "fall forward" so as to lean into Christ to gain those "extra yards" in perseverance and grace. (Note how well Mother Cecilia illustrates this technique!) Perhaps these techniques will help us as we begin the Great Fast tonight!
Can we play this the next time we're up there...?? :)ReplyDelete
