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

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.
