CNN news reported:
“The priest, who hasn’t been named, used the toy to glide in and out of rows of churchgoers while singing a Christmas song in English and Tagalog, which was caught on camera and has since gone viral,”.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of San Pablo, in a Facebook post, stated the priest will take time to think on what he has done.
According to the post
The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence. It is the Remembrance of the Lord’s Sacrifice. It is the Church’s highest form of worship and is the source and summit of Christian life. Consequently, it is not a personal celebration where one can capriciously introduce something to get the attention of the people .
The priest acknowledged that his action was not right and that it was a wake up call for him. He promised that it will not happen again.
“He will be out of the parish and will spend some time to reflect on this past event.”
He said he is truly sorry for his actions.
