Great moments in liturgy: the priest who has Superman on his vestments


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No … it’s SuperPriest!

Catholic padre Humberto Alvarez of Saltillo, Mexico, is getting plenty of online love because of these images showing him wearing robes covered in superhero images when he celebrates children’s Mass. Not many members of the clergy would sport pictures of Superman, Batman and Spidey on their holy vestments, but Alvarez clearly knows something about keeping kids’ attention.

The godly goofball also peps up the service by using a water gun to bless the congregation with holy water.

He puts on regular robes for the adult Mass, though, and brings it back to that guy who (like Superman) died for a while but then came back.
