This is so scary! 😱😱😱

Footage of a Maronite priest celebrating Mass during Tuesday’s Beirut, Lebanon explosion recently surfaced. The explosion killed more than 100 people and wounded approximately 4000.

In the livestream video, the priest celebrating Mass chants and burns incense. Suddenly, the church shakes and the power shuts off. The priest continues Mass until debris and stained-glassed windows fall from the ceiling. He then flees and the video ends.
