A priest has gone viral after using a water gun to bless parishioners.

Photos of Reverend Tim Pelc show him shooting holy water into car windows to bless Detroit church-goers at Easter whilst following social distancing guidelines. They have since gone viral and inspired memes on Reddit and Facebook.

Pelc explained how he came up with the idea while trying to find a safe method to continue the tradition of blessing Easter baskets and to make sure children had a fun memory of Easter during the coronavirus lockdown.

He told ‘Today’: “I thought, what could I do that would keep the quarantine restrictions going and give kids the experience of Easter?”

70-year-old Pelc told BuzzFeed News that he was a little concerned about how the Vatican might react when the photos of him squirting holy water began circulating widely on the internet. But, he said, “I haven’t heard anything yet.”

According to USAToday, The church and surrounding communities have taken the pandemic seriously, Pelc said. Parishioners have tied blue ribbons on trees at the church for each person who has died of COVID-19 in Michigan. That number is now approaching 5,00
