Is hoverboard a menace or the future? It seems as if the world is struggling to decide and meanwhile we are left with incidents that involve the use of hoverboard and the response that these incidents manage to get is surprising. During the last week of holidays, a priest in the Philippines was seen riding a hoverboard down the aisle while a mass was going on and singing a song to his congregation.
The video was able to generate millions of views on Facebook and following this, the Diocese of San Pablo issues a statement where the priest’s actions were condemned. The Diocese of San Pablo said, “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.”
It was further added that the priest has been temporarily removed from the parish in order to allow him to “reflect on this past event.” The event has been described as “going around the nave standing on a hoverboard.”
