I’m not a big soccer (or as the rest of the world calls it, football) fan, but I have been aware of the excitement surrounding the World Cup. I just checked and it appears Germany won in the final match against Argentina. Perhaps my readers know that Pope Francis, the current Holy Father is a big soccer fan and from Argentina. Recall, too, that the Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is from Germany. I wonder if the two Popes got together at one of their residences this evening to watch the World Cup final match, cheer on their national teams and place a friendly wager. Wouldn’t that be fun?
