There have been some, shall we say, unusual side effects of the world being in lockdown. Like goats running rampage in abandoned towns, people doing aerobics on their front steps, and, er, priests squirting holy water at their congregations out of plastic water pistols. 

While people around the world have been social distancing and staying home, places of worship have been closed. But that hasn’t stopped some priests finding a creative way to continue to bless their flock.
