“Fasting makes sense if it really chips away at our security and, as a consequence, benefits someone else, if it helps us cultivate the style of the good Samaritan, who bent down to his brother in need and took care of him.”
— Pope Francis, at his Ash Wednesday Mass March 5 at Rome’s Basilica of Santa Sabina

“If you have a rock to lean on in your Catholic faith, God is always going to be there. And you have fellow coaches who share the same faith and values as you that you can lean on. That’s a huge benefit going forward. And as a young coach, it’s definitely encouraging for me because it’s not an easy business. But my faith is always going to be strong.”
— Ben Steele, offensive quality control coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and one of more than 100 Catholic coaches who gathered for Mass and a meal together Feb. 22 during the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis
