Bayern hang out with the pope; pledge €1 million to his charity



Karl-Heinz Rummenigge then presented FC Bayern’s special “gift” for their host: “In the coming year our team will contest a friendly match. Out of the revenues from this, we will place €1 million at the disposal of the Holy Father for charitable purposes. Pope Francis may then himself decide how these funds should be used, to spontaneously help people in need wherever they are in the world and regardless of their faith.”


...On his arrival, Francis praised his guests’ performance at Stadio Olimpico. “You played a wonderful game yesterday,” the Holy Father told the delegation in Italian. The Pope, a passionate football fan, admitted to “surprise” at the margin of victory the previous evening. “Football is good and healthy, and a good role model for children as a team sport,” he said....
