Everytime the Washington Redskins play a nationally televised game our organic search results go through the roof because of this very question. Are all the people who are searching for “Is RGIII Catholic”, necessarly all that interested in his faith life? Probably not, but seeing someone cross themselves(as RGIII is known to do) is a very Catholic thing and people recognize that. So why would anyone care enough to go to the effort to search for such a thing? The world tells us that our faith is old fashion and irrelevant, so who cares if a football player is Catholic or not? I firmly believe this is the work of the Holy Spirit working in people lives and in their hearts. He is going to reach out to us and call to us in any way possible. If that means we get inspired while sitting in front of the TV Sunday afternoon watching the game then so be it. If God can work through a whale, he can work through a Samsung.
This brings me to my Advent Challenge for the day. During this season of Advent be on the look out for ways The Lord has spoken to you or influenced you in unconventional ways?
By the way my sources tell me that RG III is not Catholic, but he is a very devout Christian who loves The Lord.
