The Chicago Bears didn’t have much of a prayer this season on the field. But a member of the family who own the NFL team maintains a big interest in, well, prayer.
Pat McCaskey — a Bears vice president and grandson of legendary Bears owner George Halas — has written a series of religious essays, poems and reflections over the years, some related to football.
In his “Ten Commandments of Football,” among the rules he gives: “Win championships with sportsmanship.”
And: “You shall not criticize the officials.”
In 2017, he published a book, “Pilgrimage,” that deals with the power of visiting places considered holy to Christians.
This year, he plans to have a new book out about sports and faith.
The Religion Roundup is also featured on WBBM Newsradio (780 AM and 105.9 FM) on Sundays at 6:22 a.m., 9:22 a.m. (unless preempted by Bears coverage) and 9:22 p.m. For tips and comments, email Robert Herguth at email@example.com.
