December 21 marks the 50th anniversary of Vince Lombardi coaching his last football game.
Vince Lombardi was such a legendary football coach that each year’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him. The proud member of the Knights of Columbus coached the Green Bay Packers to five league championships in seven years and two Super Bowl wins. He received Communion daily if he could and prayed that each Communion might serve as his viaticum if he died — leaving a great example for Catholics in the new year.
