Now for a joke from Sally

Words of Wisdom – Never, EVER be late

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’s wife, and taken illegal drugs. I was appalled. 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!

Thank you for joining us today and we hope you are leaving with a smile on your face.. Debby and Sally.

  1. Another top of the range selection! I loved the confessional – I knew it was coming but couldn’t see how! The bear vending machine (thanks, Michael!) was superb! xx

  2. LOl loved the confession. When I was younger I went to school in a convent. The priest used to come every day to celebrate Mass and take confession. We kids could never think of anything o confess so we’d make stuff up. I am sure he knew we did. My younger brother had a booming voice so everyone in the chapel heard his confession too. He’d murdered an ant by stepping on it, he’d pinched an apple from the fruit bowl, and taken jam from the dish on the table before asking. Three Hail Marys and Two Our Fathers were his punishment. Being older, I used to crack up outside the confessional listening to him every week.
