Football World Cup: “Mission Ouvrière” diocese of Lille, “enjoy the World Cup as Christians”

Since the beginning of the World Cup, the “Mission Ouvrière” of the diocese of Lille has been following matches through its site “Enjoy the World Cup as Christians” ( ) Interviews, games, quiz programmes, prayers, and cartoons accompany supporters intending to put God “at the centre of the midfield circle with humour and kindness!” For every match France is playing, a quiz will be faced by two teams, “faith and football”, hinging on the countries of the rival teams opposed by the “Bleu”. A few matches may also be seen together, on a giant screen at the headquarters of the Mission, in Lille, or they may be commented on social media. To “Enjoy the World Cup as Christians”, “it is not a matter of wearing T-shirts such as ‘I love Jesus’ to go to the arena or set up Masses in the fan-area”; “it is just enjoying football with others (believers or not), sharing those two passions: love for God and love for good game”. All the initiatives proposed by the site are just “pretexts to stimulate debate, competition and sharing”.
