Blessing for Vatican cricket team

Francis signed a bat that the team will take during their five match tour of England which starts on Friday.

The Catholic team are being seen as the underdogs as they prepare to face the Anglican XI plus a team fielded by the Queen at Windsor Castle.

The matches have been set up to raise money for a joint Catholic and Anglican campaign against modern-day slavery and human trafficking.

It's thought the bat will be auctioned after the games to raise even more cash for the cause.

The final showdown between the Vatican and Church of England takes place on September 19.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
