A shocking video of a child's baptism has gone viral, as it features a priest slapping the child across the face.
As you can see in the footage, the priest tries to comfort the crying little one.
When the baby continues to cry he appears to slap the child across the face.
The bawling baby is being held by its mother when the elderly priest takes a grip of its head with his hand.
Finally, the man believed to be the child's father interjects, and removes the child from the situation before the video cuts out.
Some users on Reddit have noted that everyone is speaking French in the video and translated what the priest is saying. The visibly upset clergyman is heard saying "calm down, calm down, you must calm down" before he slaps the child in front of a man and woman who appear to be his parents.
