When you see a priest with a face mask and a face shield spraying holy water on people through a drive-through blessing, you know shit is serious.

Michigan priest Father Timothy Pelc, has become famous online after being photographed spraying holy water on churchgoers with a squirt gun on Easter.

In an interview by Buzzfeed, Pelc said the reason he was able to spray people with a water gun was because of the "pretty wacky" and "pretty accepting congregation".

He had consulted an emergency room doctor before deciding to bless people with a water gun.

"It was a good news story and people were in the mood for something like that," Pelc said, adding that he was shocked to see his images being shared far and wide.
