(PCM) Even those who have dedicated their lives to the church get busy sometimes! This was exactly the case with the priest who hilariously left a note for parishioners to keep their confessions brief and to the point due to being the priest on duty that evening.
There must have been an over abundance of confessions in this particular church to even spark the need to write such a note in the first place. The priest wanted to make sure that everyone had their fair chance at confession and penance. He probably could have added to the note to skip the confession all together and just say four Hail Mary’s!
The priests note read as follows: “Confession today (Saturday) will be until exactly 5:30pm. There is only one priest available for confession today. Make your confession direct to the point and confess only your sins and offenses. No need to explain why you did it. Thank you very much!”
Apparently, mass being delayed due to an overabundance of confessions on Saturdays is a pretty common problem at various churches, so this particular priest made the decision to take matters into his own hands and solve the issue at hand.
