A Priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 35 years in
the parish.
A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen to
make the presentation and to give a little speech at the dinner.
However, he was delayed, so the Priest decided to say his own few
words while they waited:
"Thank Goodness we Catholics have a wonderful sense of humor!   I got my
first impression of this 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, 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;  had sex with his boss's 17 year
old daughter on numerous occasions, taken illegal drugs; had several
homosexual affairs; was arrested several times for public nudity and
gave VD to his sister-in-law.  I was appalled that one person could do so many awful things.
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," said the
politician.  "In fact, I had the honor of being the first person to go
to him for confession."
Moral:    Never, never be late!
