In these trying times, it’s important to savour life’s funnier moments and hold them tight. Enter Paolo Longo, an Italian priest of the Church of San Pietro and San Benedetto di Polla, who accidentally turned on Facebook filters during a livestream.
Priest Longo posted the livestream mass via his Facebook page for Italian service-goers currently under lockdown amid the coronavirus’ enormous spread across the nation. The filters were activated throughout the entirety of the 49-minute service.

Let’s go through some of his lewks, shall we?
Priest Longo is being praised for his work, and technical finesse. He even saw the fun in it all: “Even a laugh is good,” he added to a Facebook post promoting his virtual masses.
Questa sera vi aspetto alle 17 per pregare col rosario…. senza emotion… ma uniti in questo momento difficile. …….
Bless, and I cannot stress this enough, him.Image: Twitter / @KiwiEV
