Vatican commandos began their pilgrimage to the soccer fields surrounding St. Peter’s Basilica Saturday for the first match of the Clericus Cup. The tournament is host to 16 different teams from Catholic institutes around Rome. The first match, between Mater Ecclesiae and Gregorian University, attracted an international crowd, signage depicting the Virgin Mary, and inspirational chants.

The Cup shall runneth over through June, giving fans of all denominations plenty of time to catch a match before (and after!) Sunday mass.

Amen, right?
