First Confession – Joke

A Priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the parish.<>

A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and to give a little speech at the dinner.<>

However he was delayed, so the Priest decided to say his own few words while they waited: <>

“I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place.<>

The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and, when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it.<>

He had stolen money from his parents; embezzled from his employer;<>

had an affair with his boss’ wife; had sex with his boss’ 17 year old daughter on numerous occasions, taken illegal drugs; <>

had several homosexual affairs; was arrested several times for public nudity and gave VD to his sister-in-law.<>

I was appalled that one person could do so many awful things…<>

But as the days went on I learned that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people.”<>

Just as the Priest finished his talk the politician arrived full of apologies at being late.<>

He immediately began to make the presentation and gave his talk: <>

“I’ll never forget the first day our parish Priest arrived” said the politician. “In fact I had the honour of being the first person to go to him for confession.”<>

Moral: Never, Never, Never Be Late<>
