Italian ski instructors pay visit to Pope

John Paul II realized this same sentiment as a young man who was an avid skier and sportsman. He would spend hours climbing up a mountain to ski down again in a matter of minutes. Pope Benedict XVI noted that while skiing one truly appreciates God?s creation of mountains and allows time to reflect on his beauty. He also expressed the important role that ski instructors play in terms of educating today?s youth. Along with teaching a sport, they also are at the forefront of teaching environmental issues associated with the mountains and nature. AE CTV GDP -BN
