DE PERE, Wis. (AP) — If you have any suggestions for what the Green Bay Packers’ chaplain should tell the team right before the game, he wants to hear from you.

The Rev. Jim Baraniak will deliver the homily for the Packers a few hours before the Super Bowl.

He says the team will hear the same readings as everyone else in Catholic churches that day, but he wants to tie the readings in with a homily that addresses the importance of the Packers’ situation.

On his blog, he lists the readings and asks people what they think the team needs to hear.

Baraniak tells WLUK-TV he expected simple responses like, “Go Pack Go.” But he says people are suggesting broader themes of unity, discipline and commitment.

He calls the response “tremendous.”
