Many calcio fans expected that Dybala would receive a warm welcome from Romanisti, but no one expected the welcome to be this massive.

To start off the action packed night Dybala did his trademark celebration, something Roma fans will be hoping to see more of, and thanked the fans for the outstanding atmosphere they created.

The Argentine playmaker than sat down on the steps outside the Palazzo Della Civilta Italiana in awe, as the fans serenaded him with Roma’s club anthem. To make things even better, 50,000 fans were seeing the announcement on a live stream on Roma’s YouTube channel.

In a press conference later Dybala revealed that he spoke to Roma manager Jose Mourinho before his move, saying “The first thing I asked the coach was what we aim to win, I like to win, him too.”

“Both Mourinho and the club have given me certainties, here there is great confidence and awareness.”

He did however admit that a title push is not expected this season and that there are other Serie A teams more prepared in that regard saying “I think it is too early to talk about the Scudetto, there is a great desire on the part of everyone: Roma won a very important trophy last year to have more ambition in the future.”

“They have grown a lot in recent years thanks to the players they are arrived with Mourinho. Our goal is to win game after game: I think there are teams ahead of us for the Scudetto.”

Pope Francis asks for forgiveness over abuse at Canadian church schools

Jul 26 2022 Share

Pope Francis has apologised for the “disastrous error” on the part of Canada’s church schools with regards to the mistreatment and abuse of indigenous children in the province. The pontiff asked survivors of the system that abused tens of thousands of children for forgiveness.

In a visit to the community of Maskwacis, Alberta, the Pope had this to say “I am sorry. I ask for forgiveness, in particular, for the ways in which many members of the church and of religious communities cooperated, not least through their indifference, in projects of cultural destruction and forced assimilation promoted by the governments of that time, which culminated in the system of residential schools.”

Francis also criticised the colonising mentality that these church schools and institutions had over the indigenous children, something that had “catastrophic” effects on generations of these people. He went on to say  “I humbly beg forgiveness for the evil committed by so many Christians against the Indigenous peoples,”

Phil Fontaine, a residential school survivor and former Assembly of First Nations national chief stated that “It’s a special moment for survivors.” After the Pope spoke, a special moment occurred as Chief Wilton Littlechild placed a feather headdress on the pontiff as the crowd cheered.
