Priest in the Philippines - level 2
A Catholic priest lost his job for a while because he was riding a hoverboard during Christmas Eve Mass in the Philippines. People who visited the church liked his version of a Christmas song, but his performance has since received a mixed reaction.
His bosses said that the Filipino priest's actions were wrong and that he is now out of his job for a little while to take time to think about his actions. They hoped this would act as a wake-up call.
81% of the people in the Filipino population define themselves as Catholic.
Difficult words: hoverboard (an electric skateboard), mass (a church ceremony), wake-up call (the moment when you realize you need to fix a problem about yourself).
