What A Time To Be Alive? Not for one Priest in the Philippines, who was suspended for riding a hoverboard during services. The Priest, maybe trying to just relate more to the younger people in the audience, has been suspended by the Diocese of San Pablo for his “wrong” behavior.
According to the Business Insider, the Catholic congregation had seen enough:
” During the holidays last week, a priest in the Philippines was filmed riding a hoverboard down the aisle during mass while singing a song to his congregation.
After the video garnered millions of views on Facebook, the Diocese of San Pablo issued a statement condemning the priest’s “wrong” behavior.
“That was wrong,” the Diocese of San Pablo, in Laguna Province, said in a statement. “The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence. It is the Memorial of the Lord’s Sacrifice. It is the source and summit of Christian life. It is the Church’s highest form of worship. Consequently, it is not a personal celebration where one can capriciously introduce something to get the attention of the people.”
The diocese said the priest has been temporarily removed from the parish to “reflect on this past event,” which was described as “going around the nave standing on a hoverboard.”
It probably took him all week to learn how to ride his hoverboard and this is how he was rewarded, with suspension. Cold world. Check out the video below.
