Red face I hope this is new!

The new priest is nervous about hearing confessions, so he asks an older priest to sit in on his sessions. The new priest hears several 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 says those things, trying them out. The old priest says, "Now, don't you think that's a little better than slapping your knee and saying, 'No way! What happened next?'"

Default Funny but not far off sometimes

Good one but, unfortunately, not far from the truth. One church I go to confession in on my way home from work ( very liberal bent) sometimes seems like you are waiting while two buddies have a beer together. Lots of laughing and talking on and on ( don't think it is all about sins).

I know the feeling Gabe, and the obvious thing that pops into your mind is how much of your confession is going to be kept secret, when they do meet up later....!!!!
