On the Pope’s team ‘there are no barriers’: papal encouragement before soccer match (Vatican News)

Pope Francis addressed players taking part in a friendly soccer game between the “Pope’s Team—Fratelli Tutti” (named after the Pope’s third encyclical letter) and a Croatian-based team of members of the Roma people.

The Pope’s team included priests, Vatican employees, migrant children and a young man with Down syndrome.

”All children have the right to grow up together without discrimination,” the Pope said. “Sports is a place of encounter and equality, and can build communities through bridges of friendship.”
