Declare Blessed Pope John Paul II Patron Saint of Sport upon his Canonisation
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

Blessed Pope John Paul II had a vision of sport as a means of building spiritual character through excellence in sporting endeavour. He believed that inner peace could be attained through sport, as set out in his declarations and writings.
Blessed Pope John Paul II said: “Sport trains body and spirit for perseverance, effort, courage, balance, sacrifice, honesty, friendship and collaboration” Bl. Pope John Paul II”.
Therefore, we the undersigned call upon the Holy Father Pope Francis to declare Blessed Pope John Paul II the Patron Saint of Sport upon his forthcoming Canonisation.
