Thursday Special ~ Confession

An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of Palermo Italy went to the local church for confession.  When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the man said:

“Father.. During World War II, a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighbourhood knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic.”

The priest replied: “That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no need to confess that.

“There is more to tell, Father. She started to repay me with sexual favours.  This happened several times a week, and sometimes twice on Sundays.”

The priest said, “That was a long time ago and by doing what you did, you placed the two of you in great danger, but two people under those circumstances can easily succumb to the weakness of the flesh.  However, if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven.”

“Thank you, Father. That’s a load off my mind. I do have one more question.”

“And what is that?” asked the priest.

“Should I tell her the war is over?”

Thanks to ECP for this weeks offering.

    if he can still get it up in his 90’s, more power to him. There is always a war going on somewhere in the world.

    Milward – I will remind you of that comment when you hit the big 90.

    Ramana – I think there are enough wars in the world without any more.

    I have been in hiding, “pigs” like this have been chasing me. I can’t find any nice “Toyboys” like you have.
    What’s your secret– you told them when the “war” was over?
