An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of
Rimini, Italy, went to the local church for confession.
When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional,
the man said: "Father, during World War II, a beautiful
Jewish woman from our neighborhood knocked
urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from
the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic."
The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did,
and you have no need to confess that."
"There is more to tell, Father. She started to repay me
with sexual favors. This happened several times a week,
and sometimes twice on Sundays."
The priest said, "That was a long time ago and by doing
what you did, you placed the two of you in great danger,
but two people under those circumstances can easily
succumb to the weakness of the flesh. However, if you
are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven."
"Thank you, Father. That is a great load off my mind. I do
have one more question."
"And what is that?" asked the priest.
"Should I tell her the war is over?''
Leave it to those Italians!!!!
Today is the oldest you've ever been, yet the youngest you'll ever be, so enjoy this day while it lasts.
