View Full Version : A priest was being honored

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 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, he 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, taken
illegal drugs, and gave VD to his
sister. 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,'
the politician. 'In fact, I had the honor of
being the first person to go to him for confession.'

Moral: Never, Never, Never Be Late
