The Father, the Son and the Holy SIRI? Italian priest blesses mobile phones at mass

Don Alessandro Palermo, a 30 year-old parish priest of the San Matteo church in Marsala, Sicily, decided to bless phones, proposing to make it a root of the Saint Lucia eve celebration on Tuesday. The forward-minded priest invited his faithful congregation to bring their smartphones to church to bless them, explaining that “they are now everywhere [phones].” “So I say to myself, why not to bless... Еще these objects that are always with us?” he added. The San Matteo congregation seems to be pretty happy with the unusual initiative. One said “of course, it's worth it, especially for us because we young people are obsessed with phones.” Saint Lucia's Day is a Christian feast day celebrated on 13 December, most commonly in Scandinavia.
