So, We've Come To This: Video Of A Quadrocopter Delivering The Eucharist During Church Service

April 4, 2018

This is a video from Brazil's São Geraldo Magela church of the monstrance containing the eucharist being flown to the alter by a quadrocopter (previously: a priest in the Philippines hoverboarding around during Christmas mass). Apparently some people have gotten upset about it. Me? I don't see what the big deal is, but I've also always dreamed of delivering the eucharist out the window of a monster truck, then giving a thumbs up to Jesus and crushing some pews during communion.

Once the video was posted to Facebook though, some devout Catholics flipped out, calling it "scandalous" and a "profanation." According to the Catholic Herald, blogger priest John Zuhlsdorf criticized the stunt as "sacrilegious silliness."

Based on the congregation's reaction, they don't seem to mind that their tithes and offerings last week went to buying the church a quadrocopter. Personally, I would have been absolutely furious, but again, we should have been saving for a monster truck.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees there's nothing more sacred than an electric flying machine.

    I had to google "eucharist". You'd think I would know since I grew up in a majority Catholic area but I'm not Catholic.

    Catholics are fucking weird.

    Is the drone camera enabled and is there a school near by?

    Sure Cain.

  • Doog

    Oh religion, why you so silly

  • TheQiwiMan

    Not the stupidest religion I've ever seen.

    I always felt Catholic masses tended to drone on.
    (rimshot!).

    I'm not a huge fan of Larry the Cable Guy but I did like his bit about going to a Catholic church. Talking about stand up, kneel down, take a shot. Punchline is "I left there drunk and crippled"

    ...and for one day, church was almost fun.

    Yes, because the 11th commandment is "Thou shalt not have any fun".

  • James

    We as Catholics believe in the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Therefore, this IS complete sacrilege. Having “fun” isn’t flying the body of Christ around in a drone. THANKS.

    Yes the sacred quadcopter blessed by the pope

    (immediately reaction) "no way they actually did this at a Catholic mass!"
    (sees Brazil) "oh, ok sure"
