From “The Guardian.”
A Roman Catholic priest in the Detroit area has taken aim at his parishioners in a bid to maintain social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, using a squirt gun to shoot holy water.
Photos posted on social media by the Saint Ambrose Church show the Reverend Timothy Pelc shooting water into a car window as it stopped by the steps of the church. He wore a mask, face shield and rubber gloves as further precautions against spreading the coronavirus. The photos were taken at Easter.
Reverend Pelc admits that he was a little concerned about how the Vatican might react when the photos of him squirting holy water began circulating widely on the internet.
But, he said, “I haven’t heard anything yet.”
