Priest performs superhero-themed mass with his holy-water gun [11 pictures]

February 19, 2013 | By Abraham | 6 comments

In the town of Saltillo, Mexico, priest Humberto Alvarez offers an unusual mass on Sunday mornings.

He wears a special robe emblazoned with superheroes and he blesses his congregation with holy water from a Super Soaker. With violence all around them, he hopes these unconventional methods will help young people understand and relate to Jesus as a messenger of justice.

And for those who don’t prefer any updates to their religious practice, Alvarez returns to traditionalism for the day’s remaining masses.
