The Mexican Super Priest

Every Sunday at the Ojo de Agua parish in Saltillo, Mexico, Father Humberto Alvarez dons a special chasuble, a special superhero robe decorated with images of Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man, and hoses down the mass with a holy water-firing squirt gun. I guess I don’t understand church very well because if someone had just told me when I was a kid that I could wear my Spidey undies and bring a toy gun, then I’d probably be Pope by now.
