Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

Don’t Be Late!

A Priest was being honoured 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 very 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’s wife, had sex with his boss’s 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.
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 very first person to go to him for confession………..” 😯

And the moral
Never, Never, Never Be Late

    Ouch! Heeheehee! But that does sound like politicians down here, so many of them think as long as they go to confession, they can do as they please and go get forgiven.

    Gotta be so careful to be on time & know what was said before you.
    I couldn’t help think of an experience a Catholic Priest named Father Mark told me many years ago. When he was fairly new to the priesthood he was assigned to a large cathedral here in Launceston. As it was such a large congregation there would be several priests assigned to hear confessions. There was another young Priest as well & he said at times when it was a bit quiet one would sneak into the other’s confession boot & using a fake voice try & fool the other into thinking it was real. He said one time a man entered the confession booth & confessed all this really graphic homosexual stuff. Father Mark thinking it was the other Priest trying to catch him out said “Yeah, good one!!!”. Apparently the man ran from the church & wasn’t seen at Mass again for quit a very long time

    Politicians don’t do bad things, they simply “capitalize on opportunities.”
