Priest Suspended For Riding Hoverboard During Mass

A Filipino priest was suspended by his diocese for singing the Christmas song while riding a hoverboard during the mass.

A Filipino priest was suspended by his diocese for riding a hoverboard during Christmas Mass Eve.

A video shows Father Falbert San Jose of the Our Lady of Miraculous Medal in the province of Laguna, south of Manila, singing the Christmas song while riding on a hoverboard during mass. The video appeared on social media and received 14 million views in three days.

According to RT, the archdiocese said in a statement, “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 not a personal celebration where one can capriciously introduce something to get the attention of the people.” Father San Jose was suspended from his duties, the archdiocese said, so that he can “spend some time to reflect on this past event.”

The video, captured by an attendee, was shared by Facebook page Novus Ordo Insider. One of the posts on the page said that it “calls for reparation.” The post further said, “Instead, pray a rosary for this priest and attend a traditional Latin mass.”

According to ABC.net.au, Boxer Mike Tyson posted a video of himself trying to ride on his daughter Milan’s hoverboard. Tyson can be seen in the video riding the device before he fell to the ground.
