You don’t see this very often!
Last week at the Catholic University of San Diego, a raccoon snuck into Mass and started climbing around the sanctuary. The animal was quiet and still enough at first that not many people noticed it perched at the front of the church, until the homily when it started moving and climbing down to ground level. One news report says it caused quite the commotion and laughter from the students at the Mass.
A student named Julie caught the raccoon on video and posted it on Twitter (view it below), which subsequently went viral and has gotten picked up on many news websites. She replied to her own tweet with a witty remark: “All beasts wild and tame, bless the lord” [sic].
Here’s the video on Twitter:
