NO MATTER HOW WELL INTENTIONED, A SQUIRT GUN AT MASS FOR HOLY WATER DISTRIBUTION?


A Mexican priest fed up with all the drug violence in his community (and God bless him for that) uses a squirt gun to sprinkle people during Mass with Holy Water.

Seriously? I bet he could have found an aspergilum shaped like a German hand grenade. When one considers that he has been using the Spanish Missal and has still experienced this rupture in dignity we can see that the translation may not be the panacea hoped for. Reminds me of a saying about eating books.
