Man of Steel, Man of Substance
H/t Deacon's Bench
Those of us who follow professional football, even peripherally, are likely familliar with the long haired defensive back of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Troy Polamalu. He is a beast on the field, highly skilled and a joy to watch for his intensity.
But, there is much more to the man that his football skills. He is a gentle and quiet man of faith. In the video below he speaks with passion, but with a very calm gentle spirit that speaks well of him as a follower of Jesus Christ.
He is of Samoan descent, and his name was not really Polamalu, but until 2007 was legally Aumau. His choice of last name is a tribute to his mother's family who raised him.
What do you think a big tough football player would have as his hobbies? Would you have guessed playing the paino, gardening and making furniture?
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in your love for Troy Polamalu and his family. Sacred Heart of Jesus fill them with your blood.
