Our goal is to give those in the world of sports
profound insight and inspiration on faith and athletics
the power of uniting them both, and

“My soul magnifies the Lord”. These words begin Mary’s great canticle of praise (often called the magnificat, the Latin translation of magnify) after her cousin Elizabeth feels her infant John (the Baptist) leap in her womb at the sound of […]
Mother Teresa was small. I do not know if she had any athletic ability in her body, but I do know (making an assumption) that she was tough as nails. In honor of her canonization yesterday, I thought it fitting […]
Training camps are winding down, the baseball highlights on ESPN are dwindling, and fantasy drafts are taking place. Football season is finally back! I’m a rookie this year so I’m learning everyday on the football field and in my faith […]
