Priests play soccer game for peace between Colombia and Venezuela

.- Following threats of war by Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez against Colombia, the diocesan newspaper in Cucuta, Colombia reported this week on a soccer game for peace, which Colombian and Venezuelan priests will play at a field on the border between the two countries.
 
Bishop Jaime Prieto Amaya of Cucuta said the purpose of the game is to bring together Colombians and Venezuelans, “as sister nations,” to “share in prayer and sport, and in a festive environment to reiterate to the world that here we are brothers and sisters, that nothing and nobody can separate us from the love we have for each other.”
 
The players will wear white jerseys as “a sign of purity and of the dignity of the children of God, in order to affirm that there is no room for armed confrontation in the hearts of those who love peace.”
