Footage shows the priest quickly losing his patience with the child but things escalate when the child becomes increasingly distraught - prompting the priest to tell the crying toddler to calm down before slapping the child on the face.

But when the baby continues to wail, the priest slaps the tot in the face with his left hand.

The outraged parents remained quiet for a few moments, before the man snatches the baby back from the elderly priest.

The shocking video of the scene which happened in an unknown French speaking country has gone viral and has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.

Another one said: "Who wants to fund me a trip so I can go slap him!"

"Calm down, calm down, you must calm down", the priest says in French. "Slap. My Child. Imma show you that these hands can do more than show you that I'm praying [sic]".

Suddenly, the priest appears unable to take it again and deals the hollering baby a quick slap in the face.

"He is just a strict old man who thinks he has to be obeyed and does not recognise the strength of his grips", one person wrote. The video features a woman wearing a red dress who seemed to be the child's mother.

Before she struck, the master of ceremonies addressed directly to the child, urging him to calm down.

Internet users are confused, anxious and appalled at the priest's actions, with one person writing, "That was uncalled for".
