What are your thoughts about this?
Fr. Peter OConnor of Dublin, Ireland made headlines this week after riding a scooter down the aisle at Christmas Eve Mass....The pastor of Ballyroan Parish in Dublin told his congregation that he received the scooter from Santa and wanted to test it out.
The parish posted a video with the caption, Fr. Peters Christmas present put to very good use! Happy Christmas. The video depicts Fr. OConnor providing the congregations final blessing, then rolling away on a scooter for the recessional. Other videos of the full recessional also surfaced. ABC News posted the pastor rolling all the way down the aisle. The congregation also cheers and applauds.

Dear Father O’Conner, thanks for your enthusiasm, but that was inappropriate. Couldn’t you have displayed your Scooter
Skilz after mass in the parking lot?

Father Albert San Jose has apologized for riding his Hoverboard during Christmas Eve services in Laguna province of the Phillipines. He was suspended for a while.
At least he didn’t skydive in.
His long flowing vestments could have gotten caught under the wheels. The parishioner cell phones would have really popped out for that spectacle.
Reminds when a priest when discussing the sizes of churches in Europe during a sermon mentioned many had signs posted reading BICYCLE RIDING PROHIBITED
Exactly. Save the theatrics, clapping, dancing, back-slapping etc. for after Mass. Step into the parish hall and cut loose. But leave the tom foolery at the church doors.
Two Our Fathers and three Hail Marys as penance.
Lighten up Francis! Mass is theatrics! God forbid that a Priest celebrates a little fun. The whole way we celebrate Christs birth is a blasphemy in itself, so give me a break.
We live in Clown World.
After making a few confessions as a youth, I quickly learned that Father _________ gave you 3 Our Fathers and 3 Hail Marys....no matter what you did.
Sounds like something Father Dougal would do in the Father Ted tv show.
Well, the Savior did ride into town on a juvenile ass.
“Sounds like something Father Dougal would do in the Father Ted tv show.”
Down with this sort of thing! (I love that show)
Can he use the exhaust pipe as the incense censer?
Oops. Just leg powered.
indeed, into town, not into the temple.
Now THAT would have made international news!
