The Force is definitely strong in this priest.

Father Roderick Vonhögen, a Catholic priest, recently filmed himself watching the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer for this first time—and his reaction to it is simply priceless.

Upon playing the video, his eyes immediately gleamed with joy—geeking out at everything that’s being featured. His child-like excitement makes this a fun video to watch and it will definitely put a smile to your face.

The reaction video has since gone viral with close to one million views on YouTube.

Other than leading a congregation, Father Roderick also manages an online Catholic organization that focuses on “building bridges between the dominant popular culture of the Western world and the religious culture and tradition of the Catholic Church”.
