Father, forgive me…

A Priest in a small town was called away for an emergency on a Sunday afternoon while he was about to hear confessions. Not wanting to leave the confessional unattended, and having no one else to assist him he called his Rabbi friend from across the street and asked him to cover for him.

The Rabbi told him he wouldn’t know what to say or do. The Priest told him to come over and he’d stay with him for a little bit to show him what to do.

The Rabbi dutifully came over. The Rabbi and the Priest were in the confessional working out the details. A few minutes later, a woman came in and said, “Father, forgive me for I have sinned.”

The priest asked, “What did you do?”

The woman said, “I cheated on my spouse.”

Priest: “How many times?”

Woman: “Three times.”

Priest: “Say two Hail Mary’s, put five dollars in the donation box, go and sin no more.”

A few minutes later a man entered the confessional. He said, “Father, forgive me for I have sinned.”

Priest: “What did you do?”

Man: “I cheated on my spouse.”

Priest: “How many times?”

Man: “Three times.”

Priest: “Say two Hail Mary’s, put five dollars in the box, go and sin no more.”

The Rabbi told the Priest that he thought he understood the procedure, so the Priest left.

A few minutes later another woman entered and said, “Father, forgive me for I have sinned.”

Rabbi: “What did you do?”

Woman: “I cheated on my spouse.”

Rabbi: “How many times?”

Woman: “Once”

Rabbi: “Go do it two more times. We have a special this week, three for five dollars!”

Thanks John B in Durban for this.
