Italian Confessional

Recommended Posts

An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of Rimini, Italy,
went to the local church for confession in 1960.
 
When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the man said:
"Father, during World War II, a beautiful Jewish woman from
our neighborhood 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
favors. 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 is a great 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?"
