To lead off today’s Round-up, we’d like to highlight three very interesting articles focusing on the faith of NFL player Troy Polamalu, a convert to Greek Orthodoxy. First, read this article from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which discusses Polamalu’s conversion and celebration of Christmas. Second, read this post from LiveTheTrinity which highlights Polamalu’s interesting take on removing “passion” and “emotivism” from worship, and why he prizes liturgical worship. Finally, read a post from the blog Opinionated Catholic about Polamalu’s Orthodoxy. Hopefully these articles will please you Steelers fans.
