I cannot live without the oxygen of laughter = DAWN POWELL + + + But please be sure to season that with the hydrogen of gravitas = PAUL OLIVERIO

A Teenage Boy Goes Into The Confessional

________________________________________________________________________________________________



"Bless me, Father, for I have killed and I feel no guilt."

"My son, this is a matter between you and the Lord 
  but He has an infinite capacity for forgiveness. 
  I am just His intermediary. 
  
"It is you who must make the direct contact 
  with Jesus and let Him cleanse your soul. 
  You have my confidentiality and His Spirit 
  to guide you."

"Thank you, Father."
 
"I will not report you to any authorities

  other than Our Savior, Jesus Christ. 
  I do not need details of your sin. 
  Report those directly to Our Lord. 
  You do not need to tell me who you killed."

"What do you mean by who? I killed a what!"
 

"I beg your pardon."
 

"I  didn't  kill  a  person.  I killed a cockroach...
  with my foot. But I was wearing boots."
 

"Is this some kind of joke, young man?”

"Yes, it is a joke, Father but I was hoping
  the other side of this confessional
  was not devoid of a sense of humor."

After ten seconds of silence,
the priest muffles a laugh.

"Son for you penance,
  I demand you partially recite
  the HAIL MARY."

"What part?"

"Only the single word that follows
 Blessed is the fruit of thy womb ______"

"Would that be the name of our Lord, Jesus."

"Correct."

"Wow! One sin confessed gets 
  a one-word penance. There is humor
  in your sense of justice, Father.
  I like that but would it be okay 
  if I said Jesus Christ?"

"Oh, JesusChristAlmighty!
  Yes, it would be okay.
  Now, get the hell out of here!"

"Thank you, Father."
