Behold: Jim Gaffigan gives out Holy Communion

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 12/27/17

Ladies and gentlemen, Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion Jim Gaffigan.

When was the last time you saw a standup comic doing that?

This is a screen shot from Instagram,where his proud wife posted a short videoshowing her husband distributing the Eucharist during the Mass at Christmas.

Keep up the good work, Mr. Gaffigan. Next thing you know, someone will ask you if you’ve ever thought of becoming a deacon…

So…have you???
