Remembering Kobe Bryant and his Catholic Faith

After the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others in a helicopter crash last weekend, memories of the NBA star have poured out across the globe. His athletic stardom, friendships, and commitment to his family have been at the forefront, but in the Catholic world, many have remembered his strong faith. It was reported that Kobe and Gianna attended Mass on Sunday before they got in the helicopter to head to his daughter's basketball game, but this was not the only time his faith came into play. In this Aleteia article, Kobe shares how his strong Catholic faith helped him through one of the lowest points in his life.
