New Italian book examines Vatican view of sports
Catholic World News - April 05, 2011
At the launch of a new book entitled Sport in the Vatican, the head of a new Vatican office for sport spoke about the importance that the late Pope John Paul II attached to athletics.
The Polish Pontiff “would almost deem sport as a sign of the times,” said Father Kevin Lixey, whose office works within the Pontifical Council for the Laity. He was speaking at the introduction of the new Italian-language book by Stefano and Roberto Calvigioni, which examines the Church’s attitude toward sports.

There is another book that needs to be reviewed that is somewhat more important than what the Vatican thinks of sports. It is somewhat basic to our faith. It is: "Evoluzionismo: Il tramonto di una ipotesi" (Evolutionism: The demise of an hypothesis). Editor, Roberto de Mattei, VP of the National Research Council of Italy. The most important research articles, now in English, are on www.sciencevsevolution.org. Yes I am a coauthor on C-14 dating of dinosaur bone collagen, Yabba dabba do to you
