I wonder the response of Pope Francis to the controversial start to the World Cup. I agree with his basic lesson of hard work. However, Brazil (Brasil) has plenty of talent. The small country of Croatia even without their top scorer held out with a red card outplayed the more talented team. They played well enough for a tie until the obvious "flop" and the controversial referee decision that went with it.

This message from the Pope is very wise, indeed. Hopefully, people will take it to heart and follow his council. If everyone did, the world would undoubtedly be a better place.
