He's Back...Mexican priest with comic book robe sprays congregation with holy water gun

Mexican priest with comic book robe sprays congregation with holy water gun

A Mexican priest has a novel way of engaging the younger members of his church by spraying them with holy water from a water gun.

Father Humberto Alvarez also wears comic book robes adorned with images of superheroes, including Batman, Superman and Spider-Man.

He says he chose those characters because they inhabit traits that he wishes to pass on to his congregation, particularly their "struggle and effort to overcome fear and find peace and forgiveness", reports Metro.

He hopes that his methods will bring a smile to the face of the children of his church in Saltillo, Mexico, as the community has been hit by drug-related violence and crime in recent years.

Alvarez, who has been a priest for 14 years, wears normal robes for adult mass and does not use his water gun.

So does a circus but that doesn't mean a preist should bring performing monkeys into a church even if it did bring "a smile to the face of the children."

For adults he fills the "water gun" with Tequila which brings a smile to the face of the adults.
