Romania’s national bodybuilding and fitness team receive Archbishop’s blessing


Before leaving for the European Championship in Spain, Romania’s National Bodybuilding and Fitness Team received the blessing of Archbishop Irineu at Christ Pantocrator Monastery in Alba Iulia on Tuesday.

The athletes were accompanied by Gabriel Toncean, President of the Romanian Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (FRCF). They venerated the relics of St. Basil the Great and other saints and listened to Archbishop Irineu’s pieces of advice.

His Eminence told them that “just as we need food, air and movement for physical health, so we need the word of God – our spiritual nourishment, the oxygen of prayer – our spiritual breath and to serve our neighbors through our work and acts of charity.”

The Archbishop of Alba Iulia distributed prayer cards to the athletes.

The 2022 IFBB European Bodybuilding, Fitness & Fitness Challenge will be held in Santa Susanna, Barcelona, May 5-9, 2022.
