Patriarch Daniel Uses Paint Roller To Bless A TV, Radio Station

Posted: Updated:

By any means necessary, right? Well, apparently this now applies to anointing objects with holy oil.

Patriarch Daniel, the leader of the Romanian Orthodox Church, is being teased for using a long paint roller dipped in holy oil to bless the church-owned station Trinitas Radio and Television. The BBC reported that a spokesman for the church told the Romanian publication Adevarul that this "sanctification rod," as some have named it, helps the patriarch bless hard-to-reach places.

The Romanian media certainly isn't refraining from poking fun at the patriarch's new fancy paint brush.
