Olympians seek ways to fuse faith, sport
TURIN, Italy - In a city famed for a holy relic, religious leaders have mobilized vigorously to provide Olympians with a large corps of chaplains and services at their villages ranging from Orthodox vespers to Islamic prayer to Buddhist meditation.

While some competitors avail themselves of these offerings, others find their own distinctive ways to fuse faith and sport. U.S. cross-country racer Rebecca Dussault, for example, has inscribed her skis with the name of Pier Giorgio Frassati, a beatified Catholic outdoorsman who roamed the mountains around Turin before his death, at age 24, in 1925.

My, my, Lance, you really do notice what is one of the great issues of the modern Olympics. I think Neil and Tony, have gotten a handle on this one. They are still were shipping pagan gods in the modern Olympics just like they did in the ancient ones.

I see they need many of our Roman Road booklets:

...truly diversity out of a ... mob, a beast, no, its a gas.

...and I jumped the back pew and landed onto a balcony, no thanks to you. But I'm sure you would agree.

It should read sgyds from a cloud.

You are way way out there brother or sister. Maybe you should speak a language we can all understand? Or perhaps this is your way of feeling above the rest of us?

Looks like there is more than just spiritual help available at the Olympics:

"Condoms are being distributed free of charge in the pharmacies for the athletes and Olympic officials.

"The tradition of free condoms originally began at the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics in an effort to raise awareness of AIDS. Since then, 40,000 condoms were given away at the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics, 100,000 at Sydney, 150,000 in Salt Lake City and 130,000 in Athens."

Zues pave ... well made great broad ways, which were inroads for Christianity. Don't blast 'em just yet.

Now the paving, on the other side. That's our own undoing. Pragmatism. Playing with Entropy.

I'll save both their heads. The play nicely on the mirror. In my eyes.

But that's dilemma. Sour, yes, but I like 'em too. A traded a tooth for my right one, one time.

Good one, Tony!

The original Olympics were part of a Gk. festival honoring Zeus. Roman & Aztec games also had religious connotations.

There's just something about faith & sport that go together.

Well, Rebecca, if the picture of Pier Giorgio does not protect you and you break a leg, you can always pray to St. Julian the Hospitaler while you are recuperating.
