"Harrison Butker is the kicker for the reigning NFL Champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. As prominent as that role is, however, Butker has his sights set on a goal far more important than kicking a football and winning a Super Bowl.
"According to a recent article from the 'Catholic News Service,' in an address to college students who are
members of the Knights of Columbus, Butker, 25, spoke clearly of the
importance of his Catholic Faith. To the young Knights he said: 'Outside
of the bright lights of the stadium, with the fans and the notoriety
that come with being an NFL player, the greatest impact that I will make
with my time on earth is remaining dedicated to my primary vocation –-helping my family get to heaven.'"
In a recent commentary, Bishop Thomas J. Tobin, of the Diocese of Providence (RI), reflected on the spiritual insights of Harrison Butker.
