The Broncos will have God on their side during the Super Bowl — at least as far as the Catholic Archbishop of Denver is concerned.

Archbishop Samuel Aquila will hold a special mass for Broncos players and staffers prior to the team’s title tilt against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey.

“I have been edified by the example of many NFL athletes and coaches and their families who make the effort throughout the football season to attend Sunday mass,” the archbishop told the Catholic News Agency.

He went on in the report: “I am sure many people are wondering what I will say to the Broncos in my homily, but all I can say is that the Holy Spirit will guide me as He wishes.

“What I do know is that during the game, I will be cheering for a Broncos victory.”

The archbishop said in the report that he was a “long-time Broncos fan,” dating back to the 1970s.
