A Mexican priest has a novel way to help deliver his holy message in the town of Saltillo.
Father Humberto Alvarez adorns his robes with images of comic-book superheroes such as Superman and Batman to entertain local children during Mass.
He also uses a water gun to dispense Holy Water.
Father Alvarez said his unorthodox methods help bring a smile to children's faces in the city which has been hard hit by organised crime and drug-related violence in recent years.
But he switches back to his normal attire and practices when holding Mass for adults.
