Pope: May Paralympic Games in South Korea “Be Days of Joy & Peace for All’
May the Paralympic Games in South Korea be days of joy and peace for all.
This was the hope Pope Francis expressed toward the conclusion of his General Audience on March 7, 2018, from the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall, as he mentioned this event that follows the Olympic Winter Games in the South Korean city of PyeongChang.
The Olympic Games, the Holy Father observed, “have shown how sport can build bridges between countries in conflict and make a valuable contribution to opportunities for peace among peoples.”
“The Paralympic Games,” the Pope stressed, prove even more that through sport we can overcome our own handicaps.”
