What can we learn from sports, especially hockey, about being holy? Plenty, according to Bishop Thomas Paprocki who has played hockey in the position of goalie for some years. In his book Holy Goals for Body & Soul Bishop Paprocki takes eight things fear, frustration, failure, fortitude, faith, family, friendship, and fun and talks about them in relationship to playing sports. He then expands and connects them with wholeness and holiness in daily life. Using examples from his own life, stories from the lives of other athletes, lessons from the Bible and teachings of the Church, in Holy Goals for Body & Soul Bishop Paprocki "makes the connections between the challenges and rewards of sports with those of daily living". Each chapter gives insights on one of the topics mentioned above and ends with a relevant quote from a saint, a promise made on the part of the reader relative to an aspect of the chapter and a prayer which also relates to the chapter. Holy Goals for Body & Soul is enjoyable to read while meaningful in the life lessons presented.
