I don’t know much about the Catholic church or the Pope, but just wondered, “Does the Pope like football (not the American kind)”
While I lament that in Switzerland you have the old school USA type life where things run from 9-5, Sundays have most shops closed, I think only dairy farmers are allowed to work? What is really cool is that all the churches are open all day. But sport and football, much like the NFL in the USA - seems to take precedence for many over talking to the creator of the game itself.
I am in what is a strong Catholic Denomination area. And an interesting way the church survives is you pay tax to keep the church open, not rely on donations. It is just something that always gave me heartburn – you could hear a great meaningful message from a preacher and in the next breath, “we want money!”
You can always find a church service here. The might be open more than the local public library.
While I don’t understand the language well enough to really get the meaning, it gives me a sense of trying to be part of the community. It is interesting how strangers are treated across the United States and in various countries of the world. Some place you are warmly welcomed, others are like walking into a sub zero freezer. it really is fascinating how one spot of the world thinks and feels so differently than another spot on the planet.
Maybe we can test this idea with Augmanity when we get to the “global” platform? It really would be fascinating to watch and see.
Until then, I will be at a football game, working to make sure people behave and for an exciting moment – throwing around ideas for a decent mascot that can see and perform more like what has evolved in the USA sports world.
Have a great day; enjoy a coffee and nice family meal for me!
