The Priest

The new priest is nervous about hearing confessions, so he asks an older priest to sit in on his sessions.

The new priest hears a couple confessions, then the old priest asks him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions.

The old priest suggests, “Cross your arms over your chest, and rub your chin with one hand.” The new priest tries this.

The old priest suggests, “Try saying things like, ‘I see”, ‘Yes, go on’ and ‘I understand.’ ‘How did you feel about that?'”

The new priest practices, saying these phrases.

The old priest says, “Now, don’t you think that’s a little better than slapping your knee and saying, ‘No shit?! What happened next?'”

    "Say 10 Hail Mary's and come back next week with more good stuff."

    • September 3, 2015 at 10:28 am

      Okay, I can do that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. September 3, 2015 at 5:24 am

    LOL! That would be a new priest. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    • September 3, 2015 at 10:31 am

      Yes, they have to learn all the pomp and circumstance. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I always thought those priests looked forward to their version of soap operas.

    • September 3, 2015 at 10:31 am

      They probably do. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. September 3, 2015 at 6:27 am

    I would totally do that if I were a priest! I think I would have hard time keeping a straight face sometimes.

    • September 3, 2015 at 10:31 am

      I'm sure it's tough to keep a straight face all the time. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I'll bet there is a lot of knee slapping after confessions are over. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. September 3, 2015 at 7:52 am

    "I've never heard of such a thing." and "You're going straight to hell.", also should not be in the confessional vocabulary. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • September 3, 2015 at 10:32 am

      I agree with you on this. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. September 3, 2015 at 8:00 am

    Lol. "You did what?!!!" is also not allowed.

    • September 3, 2015 at 10:32 am

      I wouldn't think so. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. September 3, 2015 at 8:17 am

    I wonder how long will the young priest be able to follow the old priest's ways!

    • September 3, 2015 at 10:32 am

      It will take some time I'm sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. September 3, 2015 at 10:14 am

    Well if they all conducted themselves like the new priest then maybe more people would be willing to go to confession.

    • September 3, 2015 at 2:49 pm

      I know I'd like this new priest far better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. September 3, 2015 at 3:17 pm
