Followers of Unvirtuous Abbey on Twitter and Facebook are used to seeing prayers such as...
"For those who say that they've made a 360 degree change, when they mean 180,....we pray."
And, "For automatic sliding doors that make you feel like a Jedi, we give thanks. Amen."
And, "For those who are living in a powder keg and giving off sparks, we pray."

Unvirtuous Abbey is a social media phenomenon,describing itself on Facebook as "Digital monks praying for people with first world problems."
Freelance reporter Dave Atkinson introduces us to the man behind the account, Moncton's Aaron Billard.
