Super Bowl spirituality

Just in time for the big game Sunday, Catholic Online has a profile of the two men who tend to the Indianapolis Colts' and New Orleans' spiritual needs — team chaplains Father Peter Gallagher (Colts) and Father R. Tony Ricard (Saints).

Father Gallagher told Catholic Online: “Prayer is a natural habit for this team. I have seen them grow in their faith, especially players that have been around for awhile. They have developed a sense of gratitude to God for all they have accomplished."

In other Super Bowl news, the archbishops of Indianapolis and New Orleans have made a friendly wager on the outcome of the game. Indianapolis Archbishop Daniel Buechlein told the Catholic News Agency that he'll get gumbo if the Colts win. Otherwise, he'll be sending some Indiana pork chops to New Orleans Archbishop Gregory Aymond if the Saints come out on top.
