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?'"

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

    1. I'll bet there is a lot of knee slapping after confessions are over. :)

  9. "I've never heard of such a thing." and "You're going straight to hell.", also should not be in the confessional vocabulary. :-o
