An attempt by a priest to roll out the use of hoverboard in the Catholic Church may have led to his fall from grace.
Bizarre footage of the holy roller zooming around during Christmas Eve mass at Our Lady of Miraculous Medal in Biñan Parish in the Philippines has spread like wildfire on social media.
And while throngs of churchgoers appear delighted with the sermon, the unnamed priest caught the ire of his local Manila diocese, who suspended him over the incident.
In an online statement, the Diocese of San Pablo condemned the incident and said it was a violation of the 'highest form of worship.'
'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,' the diocese said in a statement on its Facebook page.
'He will be out of the parish and will spend some time to reflect on this past event. He would like to apologise for what happened.'
