Univisión to air special on Santo Toribio soccer team

As the football soccer World Cup is coming to an end, having stirred all kinds of emotions in people around the globe, now we offer a story of young students from an inner-city Catholic school who are showing their commitment, love and faith in action through the sport. 

Beating all odds they have managed to become champions for the third consecutive time in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, competing with nearly 20 other schools. Univision reporter Julio Cesar Ortiz tells their story in the two-part series “Un Santo en la Cancha”(“A Saint on the Field”) that will air Monday, July 14, and Tuesday, July 15, on Univision 34 at 11p.m

‘Digging a well together’

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

Christian de Cherge, the Trappist Abbott who was martyred in Algeria in 1996, was fond of sharing this story: He had a very close Muslim friend, Mohammed, and the two of them used to pray together, even as they remained aware of their differences as Muslim and Christian.  

Aware too that certain schools of thought, both Muslim and Christian, warn against this type of prayer out of a sense that the various faiths are not praying to the same God, the two of them didn’t call their sessions together prayer. Rather they imagined themselves as “digging a well together.”
