The Retirement Dinner

The Retirement Dinner

A priest was being honored at his retirement dinner
after 25 years serving the parish.

A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen
to make the presentation and give a little speech at the dinner. He was
late getting there, so the priest decided to say his own few words while
they waited.

"I got my first impression of the parish from the very first confession I
heard here.

I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place. The very first
person that entered my confessional told me, he had stolen a television set
and, when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it.
He had stolen money from his parents, embezzled from his employer, had an
affair with his boss's wife, taken illegal drugs, and gave VD to his sister.

I was appalled. But as the days went on I knew that my people were not
all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and
loving people.".....

Just as the priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of
apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and gave
his talk.

"I'll never forget the first day our parish priest
arrived," said the politician. "In fact, I had the honor of being the very
first person to go to him for confession."
