Are you ready for the “Big Game” this Sunday? Grab your favorite snacks and get ready for a great match between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

John Morales interviews Fr. Richard Rocha, the Catholic chaplain for the Kansas City Chiefs, ahead of Super Bowl 58. Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Imagine how amazing it’d be to be able to offer Mass for the team! This is Fr. Rocha’s role as chaplain. He is responsible for providing Mass for Catholic players and staff, offering confessions, counseling, and even performing weddings and baptisms for team members. He is present at the team’s hotel before games and travels with the team to the Super Bowl.  #dreamlife

  2. Harrison Butker’s faith:  You may know about the strong Catholic faith of Chiefs’ placekicker Harrison Butker, who wears the brown scapular and credits his success to his devotion to Our Lady. He spent time in a monastery giving thanks after winning the Super Bowl. He’s such a great witness, and you’ll hear a clip of him talking to John Morales from last year.

  3. Faith within the team: Fr. Rocha agrees that faith is important for many Chiefs players, who are seen in prayer and giving glory to God on the sideline during games. 

  4. Super Bowl expectations: Father is no doubt confident that the Chiefs can win another Super Bowl, given their track record and strong performance in the playoffs.
