Before he became a priest, Father David Jasso was the manager of a major Mexican soccer club that won two championships, and ahead of this year’s World Cup in Qatar he had an important message to give.
Jasso managed the Monterrey Soccer Club in Mexico, known as the “Rayados,” leading the team to local championships in 2009 and 2010.
A few weeks before the start of the FIFA (International Federation of Football Association) Soccer World Cup to be held in Qatar this year, Jasso appealed to players and fans to experience “soccer with joy and as an opportunity to grow our talents, remembering that sports and soccer are also a gift from God.”
In an Oct. 6 Facebook post titled “It’s still time to experience the World Cup in peace,” Jasso pointed out that “soccer should be a safe family event.”
