    The...
    A local priest was being honored at his retirement dinner
    after 25 years in the parish.

    A local politician and member of the congregation was
    chosen to make the presentation and to give a little
    speech at the dinner.

    However, he was delayed, so the priest decided to say
    a few words while they waited:

    "I got my first impression of the parish from the first
    confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned
    to a terrible place. The very first person who 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 also stolen money from his parents, embezzled
    from his employer, had an affair with his best friend's wife,
    and taken illicit drugs. I was appalled.

    "But as the days went on, I learned that not all 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 for being late. He immediately began to
    make his presentation and said: "I'll never forget the first
    day our parish priest arrived. In fact, I had the honor of
    being the first person to go to him for confession."

    Moral of the story: Never, ever be late.
