The faith of this community is so strong that they would not let a little flood come between them and the Lord.
A video is being shared on social media that shows the determination of a Catholic African community to attend Mass no matter what the obstacle. In it, a small congregation can be seen sitting in boats within a flooded church as the celebrant leads them in worship.
The short clip originated on TikTok, posted under the account Claude3933, and has since made its way to Twitter, where it was shared by Catholic journalist Sachin Jose. Jose posted it with the caption: “Amazing faith of Catholics in Africa! A Catholic priest celebrates Mass with the faithful in a church that is flooded with water.”
