Italian Confession

Recommended Posts


An elderly Italian man who lived near Monte Casino 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 very young, beautiful woman

knocked on my door and asked me to hide her from the enemy. So I hid her in

my attic."

The priest replied, "That was a very wonderful thing you did, my son! And

you have no need to confess that."

"It's worse than that, Father. She started to repay me with sexual favors."

The priest said, "By doing that, you were both in great danger. However,

two people under those circumstances can be very tempted to act that way.

But if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven."

"Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. But I do have one

more question."

"And what is that?", asked the priest.

"Should I tell her the war is over?"
