11/07/13 Grif.Net – Confession

In 1965 a man in Amsterdam felt that he needed to confess his sin, so went
to his priest.

“Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. During World War II I hid a Jewish
refugee in my attic.”

“Well,” answered the priest, “that’s not a sin. As a matter of fact it was a
brave thing to do.”

“But” he continued, “I made him agree to pay me 20 Gulden for every week he

“I admit that wasn’t good, but you did it for a good cause.”

“Oh, thank you, Father; that eases my mind. I have one more question…”

“What is that, my son?”

“Do I have to tell him the war’s been over for twenty years?”
