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?'”

I'll be it's hard to get your game face on with some of these confessions. 🙂
LMAO I think i prefer the new priests way heheh!
Have a sintastic day Sandee g-)
Lot less stuffy isn't it. 🙂
I like the new priest's way too. Much better and very funny. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a wonderful day.
Yes, a little lighter goes a long way with most. 🙂
"Say 10 Hail Mary's and come back next week with more good stuff."
Okay, I can do that. 🙂
LOL! That would be a new priest. 🙂 🙂
Yes, they have to learn all the pomp and circumstance. 🙂
I always thought those priests looked forward to their version of soap operas.
They probably do. 🙂
I would totally do that if I were a priest! I think I would have hard time keeping a straight face sometimes.
I'm sure it's tough to keep a straight face all the time. 🙂
And NO LAUGHING!
I'll bet there is a lot of knee slapping after confessions are over. 🙂
"I've never heard of such a thing." and "You're going straight to hell.", also should not be in the confessional vocabulary. 😮
I agree with you on this. 🙂
Lol. "You did what?!!!" is also not allowed.
I wouldn't think so. 🙂
I wonder how long will the young priest be able to follow the old priest's ways!
It will take some time I'm sure. 🙂
Just dropping in to say HI! hope you are keeping well Sandee! *HUGS* we are all doing great 🙂 catch up again… soon!
Hi Ann…great to see you. We're doing fine here too. I miss you. Big hugs back. 🙂
The knee slapping would be funnier. 🙂 Have a great day!
It sure would. 🙂
Dear Sandee, Adorable!! and funny.

Thank Catherine. You have a wonderful weekend. too. xoxo 🙂
loud laughter over here! Good one! Have a heavenly day!
You have a heavenly day too Kathe. 🙂
Well if they all conducted themselves like the new priest then maybe more people would be willing to go to confession.
I know I'd like this new priest far better. 🙂
Heeheehee! Ah, them young ones have a completely new attitude, don't they?
Yes they do and it's all good. 🙂
Ha ha ha I saw that coming…. I remember that from my old Catholic school days!!! I sometimes wonder if priests have to hold back from laughing… I'm sure they do!
I'm sure they do too. There are lots of funny stuff happening I'm sure. 🙂
Yes, it probably is.
It probably is indeed Binky. 🙂
