GREETINGS

Dear friends,

It is with joy that we welcome you to the Vatican, and to this International Summit “Sport for All. Cohesive, Accessible and Tailored to each person”. Since the birth of modern sports in the 19th century, the Church has willingly accompanied and promoted the practice of sports. Using the words of His Holiness Pius XII, sport is not “a vain agitation of limbs,” but an “activity with high educational and social potential, capable of promoting the person.”

Along with support and continuous encouragement, the Church also assumes the responsibility of elucidating the challenges to the honest practice of sport. The Church always maintains, with full awareness, that sport is a precious good that must be nurtured.

Pope Francis continually reminds us that we are called to live in a complex age of transition, and asked to build ever- stronger educational and social alliances. The occasion of this International Summit, and the Declaration that accompanies it, is a further sign of friendship between faith and sport. It is a sign of friendship capable of delivering gestures of hope and visionary planning – to give continued momentum, to the potential for inclusion and social cohesion in sport.

HIS EMINENCE

CARDINAL KEVIN JOSEPH FARRELL

Prefect of the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life

Sport is a living and dynamic expression of a fundamental dimension of the human person; in play, we have a gratuitous manifestation of our creativity and potential, both physical and spiritual. True sport weaves together in harmony the body and the spirit, force and beauty, physical exercise and intelligence, passion and will, quick intuition and long-acquired habit.

We can consider sport — like art and music — as a universal language shared by peoples, which unites diversities in harmony, that passes over ethnic and national identities, and generates a true culture of encounter and dialogue.

Such a precious good for humanity must be made accessible to each person, no matter the age, sex, physical or mental condition. Every girl and boy, every woman and man should have the opportunity to experience at least once in life the pure joy of play, the reward of physical effort, the pleasure of victory and the humility of defeat.

In pure and creative sport we can see a reflection of God whose creative cosmic wisdom is portrayed in the Bible (Proverbs 8:30-31) as a young woman playing, dancing and exercising on the face of the earth. God loves to play, and so do we.

INTRO

The world of sport today, like the societies in which we live, is experiencing an economic and identity crisis of systemic proportions. The pandemic has allowed us to see more clearly problems that until now were hidden or at least not visible to all, including the distance between amateur and professional sport. To overcome this situation requires that we all work together.

As Pope Francis said during the historic vigil on the deserted square of St. Peter’s Basilica on March 27, 2020, “we were caught off guard by an unexpected, turbulent storm. We have realized that we are on the same boat, all of us fragile and disoriented, but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together, each of us in need of comforting the other.” It is with this spirit of fraternity that we look ahead, for turning back is not possible. There is a temptation to limit ourselves to resilience, that is, to ride out the storm and go back to the way things were before. However, such a strategy would only lead to outdated cultural models. Instead, we need the courage to adapt, accept change and seize new opportunities.

For this reason, the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life, in collaboration with the Dicastery for Culture and Education, is organizing an International Summit in the Vatican on September 29 and 30, 2022, under the title Sport for All: Cohesive, accessible and tailored to each person. It will involve the major sports and intergovernmental institutions and organizations and build on the October 2016 event Sport at the Service of Humanity and the June 2018 document Giving the Best of Yourself. The aim is to promote the social and inclusive dimension of sport in society, especially when it encapsulates an authentically Christian spirit. It is a response to the Holy Father’s encouragement of a sport that is socially responsible and his appeals to foster sport as a means of human, educational and spiritual growth.

The main purpose of the Summit is to urge sports and politics, international, regional and local, to embrace the Declaration by committing to work for the integration of people in society through sports, especially people with physical, intellectual and relational disabilities, migrants and refugees, prisoners, youth and the elderly, women, etc. It also seeks to motivate sports bodies to reduce the division that exists between professional and amateur sports so that the sense of play, camaraderie, and gratuitousness is not lost.
