Bishop takes a (sky) dive to get pilgrims to Lourdes



British Bishop Richard Moth skydives from 15,000 feet harnessed to an instructor. The bishop jumped to raise money to send pilgrims from his diocese to the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in France.

The Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales tweeted: “Is it a bird? Is it a plane? … Wait, it’s a bishop!” They made no reference to the insect that flies and shares the bishop’s name.
