A confession

A priest was being honoured at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the parish. The local member of parliament was chosen to make the presentation but when he was delayed 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. The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and when stopped by the police had almost murdered the officer. He’d stolen money from his parents, embezzled from his job, had an affair with his boss’s wife and taken illegal drugs. I was appalled.”Just as the priest finished his talk the politician arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and give his speech. “I’ll never forget the first day our parish priest arrived,” said the politician. “In fact, I had the honour of being the first to go to him in confession.”
