VIDEO: Irish rugby stars pause for Angelus in search #ForVictory

Sport is religion to some in Ireland and ahead of the Rugby World Cup, Lifestyle Sports have come up with a way to help please the sporting gods and receive help for the boys in green.

Everyday, between now and the RWC, Lifestyle will be playing this video at 12pm and 6pm and reflecting on a sporting life.

In true Angelus style, the video is typical of Irish life and many stop what they’re doing (no matter how compromising their position) to contemplate the true meaning of our sporting existence.

Ian Madigan, Robbie Henshaw and Conor Murray lead the nation in prayer.

You can join in by using the hashtag #ForVictory on Twitter.
