Photos: Filipino priest Suspended by church for gliding on hoverboard during mass  

 A priest in the Philippines has been suspended by the church after video shared on social media showed him gliding on a hoverboard while preaching during mass.

The video which has racked up millions of views, showed Father Albert San Jose from the Philippines Diocese of San Pablo gliding on a hoverboard during a Christmas Eve mass at the Lady of Miraculous Medal church in Biñan town.

While the parishioners enjoyed seeing their priest having a good time, the stunt did not go down well with the priest’s bishop.

“That was wrong,†the archdiocese said in a statement released on Tuesday. “The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence. It is the Memorial of the Lord’s Sacrifice. It is the source and summit of Christian life.â€

Father Jose later apologized for the stunt, saying it will never happen again
