This is hilarious!

Being a priest is hard work. It’s an entire life dedicated in service to God. That’s very counter-cultural today, and so people don’t necessarily know how to react when they see a priest outside of church.

Fr. Goyo is a priest in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. He’s very active on social media, with more than 11k followers on Twitter (and growing!). We previously shared his amazing story about performing a wedding for a couple in a hospital while the woman was dying. Yesterday he posted this funny story on Twitter – and it’s going viral!

Here’s the story on Twitter

The text reads: “I went to the movies today and in front of me a little kid said to his mom, ‘mom there is a priest here.’ And the mom responded, ‘yeah I know. Sometimes they let them out of the church.’ I am not usually shy, but this time I just didn’t know what to say.”

LOL! Well that’s a funny way to respond to a priest in a non-church situation.
