A priest from the Philippines has been temporarily suspended from his parish after he was recorded riding a hoverboard during mass.

The video went viral on the Internet this past week, showing the priest gliding down the aisle while on the popular Christmas gift, singing a song to the congregation.

After the video was spread like wildfire, the Diocese of San Pablo condemned his behavior, calling it “wrong.”

He issued a statement, writing,

“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.”

Following his temporary removal from the parish, the priest is being asked to “reflect on this past event,” which they described as “going around the nave standing on a hoverboard.”
