  • We don't have any statistics, but it is not hard to imagine that priests, pastors, and other religious leaders have become busier amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    One's faith can bring spiritual relief when scared, isolated, or unsure. In many communities here and around the world, they are frontliners, too.

    For Catholics, priests also provide the balm through sermons, which have become harder to deliver because of the pressure to be, well, entertaining. Folks have shorter attention spans, and this is so true online.  If you want people to focus and really listen, you will need to get creative — and it's even better if you're funny.

    Fr. Fiel Pareja fits the bill with an extra edge: he is a natural in front of the camera. Yes, this priest spreads the Word of God via any social platform you can imagine, from YouTube to Kumu.

    His attempts at Tiktok challenges have gained him more than 800,000 followers on the video-sharing platform. After he put up his first video on Tiktok, people began asking him for prayers and advice, and the rest, as they say, is viral history.
