Brett Favre: real Catholicism

I'm just going to offer one quote from this article on Brett Favre's (Green Bay Packers quarterback) faith:

"If I were to make a list, I would include the interceptions, the sacks, the really painful losses. Those times when I've been down, when I've been kicked around, I hold on to those. In a way those are the best times I've ever had, because that's when I've found out who I am. And what I want to be."

Read the article. It explains how Brett and his wife had a child out of wedlock, reject the idea of abortion, suffered through many difficulties but never questioned God's goodness ("if I asked why my father died or why Deanna has breast cancer, I would have to ask why I throw touchdown passes").

God bless you Brett and Deanna.

Pax Christi tecum.
