"Sport, properly directed, develops character, makes a person courageous, a generous loser and a gracious victor... it also makes the mind itself a more refined instrument for the search and communication of truth and helps a person to achieve that end to which all others must be subservient, the service and praise of his or her Creator." Pope Pius XII, Sport at the Service of the Spirit. July 29, 1945.
"The Church looks at sport with great sympathy, since it considers the human body as the masterpiece of creation.... The Church sees sport as a mighty element of moral and social education." Pope John Paul II, Address to the International Olympic Committee. May 27, 1982.
