This meme is working its way around social media—and it’s too good not to share.
Kudos to the good folks at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.
A Minneapolis church is getting quite the reaction to a Facebook post playing off the Vikings’ improbable comeback win Sunday over the New Orleans Saints.
Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church took to Facebook with its own take on the 61-yard touchdown pass from Vikings quarterback Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs with 10 seconds left that gave the team its, er, miraculous, 29-24 win in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
“If you made any promises during the last 10 seconds, Sunday masses are at 8:30 a.m., 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.,” the posting reads.
That is the day the Vikings play the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC Championship Game and a trip to Super Bowl LII.
In the day since the posting went up Monday, it was shared more than 7,100 times.
“I think I already committed to confession … for the words I used during that last hour as well,” wrote Nick Fritzen on the church’s Facebook page.
Others called it a clever way to evangelize, while another called the posting “an infusion of grace.”
