With the social distancing of becoming the new standard, an image of a priest using a toy squirt gun, while performing a baptism has summed up what the year 2020 has been assumed.
In the image, the nameless priest and a woman holding a baby looks to maintain the social distance. The priest is seen squirting a water pistol at the baby, while sporting a mask.
Tweeps were quick to react to the unusual image, and many jokes.
Twitter user @audrey393 wrote: “These pictures are going to be really cool for these kids when they are older. “I have baptized with a firearm.'”
User responded with a photo of a similar baptism that took place in Minnesota, united states.
The couple, Maria and Kyle Nielsen, according to the report, had scheduled a baptism for their two months of age, the son of James Wesley before the outbreak of the pandemic. But seeing the increase in cases and the churches are closed, the family postponed the ceremony.
However, the family decided to baptize the baby at home. It was Mary’s brother who came up with the idea of the jet to the gun.
However, not everyone is a fan of the social-distanced himself from the ceremonies that take place.
The practice has been considered to be too comical, and lack of respect on the part of some.
