Living in 2020 is nothing like we’ve ever seen before. Many things we’ve been taking for granted, like having coffee with our friends, or going shopping, or going to the cinema, etc. will never be the same anymore. However, that doesn’t stop us from doing ‘essential’ things, like getting baptized.
One American family just couldn’t let the global pandemic get in the way of introducing their newborn to the Catholic Church, so they decided to have their baby baptized. You know, the essentials.
Sadly, we were unable to pinpoint the exact location where the photo was taken, but it clearly shows the priest baptizing the baby using a water pistol.
The bizarre picture was posted on social media a few days ago, and it became very popular ever since. We have to admit, it does look hilarious to see the priest baptizing the baby, all dressed up in a ceremonial dress, with holy water from six feet away.

A similar photo was taken in a church in Minnesota, where parents Mary and Kyle Nielsen had to think of something creative in order to get their two-month-old baby baptized.
Well, that’s 2020 for you folks.
