Will Victorious Italian Soccer Team’s Catholic Manager Robert Mancini Be a ‘Seed of Evangelization?’| National Catholic Register

ROME — An Italian religious sister correctly prophesied that her nation’s soccer team would win the European Championship trophy last Sunday, telling the team’s Catholic manager 18 months ago his team would have Our Lady with them, and he could be a “seed of evangelization.”  Sister Rosalina Rovasio made the prescient prediction in December 2019 when Italy’s soccer manager, Roberto Mancini, visited her Queen of Peace Shalom Community in northern Italy.  “Roberto, you will win the European Championship because you have Our Lady with you and you can be a seed of evangelization,” Sister Rosalina said, according to the Italian Catholic daily La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana. The newspaper’s editor Riccardo Cascioli, who was present at the Christmas party when Sister Rosalina made her remark, said Mancini is an old friend of the religious community.  Italy were crowned European champions in London on Sunday after a tense final in which they beat England on penalties following a 1–1 draw after extra time.  Its first European Championship title since 1968, Italy, with its victory followed the nation’s failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia — a major blow to the soccer-crazed nation. The victory also came after a very difficult 18 months for the country that has borne the brunt of some of the most serious effects of the COVID crisis.
