The local priest rang up his oppo in the Church of England

asking him for a favour.

“I’m supposed to hear confessions in half an hour but

something unexpected has come up and I have to be the

other side of the diocese by 2 o’clock. Will you take over

from me here?” asked the priest.

“What! but I’ve never done it before.”

“It’s quite straight forward” said the priest. “Sit in with me for

half an hour before I go and you’ll soon get the hang of it.”

So the vicar agrees and is soon hidden away within earshot

of the confessional. The first person to enter is a woman.

“Father, I have sinned.”

“What have you done my child?”

“I have been unfaithful.”

“How many times have you been unfaithful?”

“Four times Father and I am truly sorry.”

“Very well, Put £2 in the box and say 10 Hail Mary’s and

you’ll be absolved.”

Not long after another woman comes in.

“Father, I have sinned.”

“What have you done my child?”

“I have slept with a married man.”

“How many times?”

“Twice.”

“Then put £1 in the box, say 5 Hail Mary’s and you’ll be

absolved.”

Moments later the priest whispered to the vicar. “You see

how it works? Take over from me now, I have to go.”

So the vicar seated himself comfortably in the confessional

and immediately a woman sat down on the other side.

“Father, I have sinned,” she said.

“What have you done, my child?”

“I have committed adultery.”

“How many times?”

“Only once, Father.”

“Well, you’d better go back and do it again.”

“What! You want me to do it again?”

“Yes, it’s two for £1.”
