Strange things are certainly happening around the world. The report of alter boys who confessed to putting weed in the censer-burner stunned worshippers of the Catholic faith around the world recently.
What started as a joke ended with the future of two altar boys from Spain, when they were detained overnight, after having surprised worshippers by putting weed in the censer-burner of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.
The censer-burner is used in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela to celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord. Several assistants stated that in this occasion the Holy Precinct was suddenly covered in an odd smell. “It did not smell as always, it was a familiar smell but I could not relate it to anything, but in my son’s bedroom sometimes smell like that”. A worshipper was quoted as saying.
Following the Mass, the altar boys were arrested by the police after confirming that the strange smell corresponded with marijuana.
“It was a joke, the idea came during the Christmas Eve mass, we bought no more than half a kilo of weed and we drop it inside the censer-burner, we are sure that people has left the Cathedral happier more than ever”. One of the arrested alter boys told the police.
Finally, they were freed by the police without charge but they will not be able to discharge their functions as altar boys any more.
