Priest suspended for riding a hoverboard during Christmas Eve Mass(Photos/video)

A priest in the Philippines was suspended on Tuesday for riding a hoverboard up an aisle during Christmas Eve Mass.
The priest at the Diocese of San Pablo sang a Christmas song, while going up and down the aisles of the church on a hoverboard on Dec. 24, The Roman Catholic Diocese of San Pablo said in a statement on facebook...


Last December 24, 2015, before the final blessing of the Christmas eve mass, as a way of greeting his parishioners, the priest sang a Christmas song, while going around the nave standing on a hoverboard. That was wrong.

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 priest said that it was a wake up call for him; he acknowledged that his action was not right and promised that it will not happen again. He will be out of the parish and will spend some time to reflect on this past event. He would like to apologize for what happened.
