EASTER JOY: Holy Goalie

Recently Rome announced that Chicago Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Paprocki was made Ordinary of the Diocese of Springfield, IL.

For years the Bishop has shared his love for hockey and especially playing goalie. He even was on the cover of USA Hockey Magazine.

In the letter, he wrote this:

"My most important tip for a goalie is the mental aspect of the goalie's game. To be successful, a goalie needs to play with CONFIDENCE. Interestingly, the word 'confidence' comes from the Latin, con + fide ("with faith"), which means that a goalie needs to play with great faith in God and in the talents, skills and abilities that God has given to him. Remember that Jesus said, 'All things are possible with God' (Mark 10:27)."

I finish with a little thing on You Tube I found on the Bishop.
