“The correct practice of sport must be accompanied by  practicing the virtues of temperance and sacrifice;  frequently it also requires a good team spirit,  respectful attitudes, the appreciation of the qualities of  others, honesty in the game and humility to recognize  one’s own limitations. In short, sports, especially in less  competitive forms, foster festive celebration and friendly  coexistence. While playing sports, Christians also find  help in developing the cardinal virtues–fortitude,  temperance, prudence and justice.”
  Saint John Paul II
  25th World Day of Tourism “Sports and Culture:Two Vital Forces for  Mutual Understanding, Culture and Development Among Countries”    27 September 2004
