The Rabbi Helps Out the Priest



A priest was called away for an emergency. Not wanting to leave the confessional unattended, he called his rabbi friend from across the street and asked if he would cover for him. The rabbi said he had never done anything like that, but the priest told him that because he would be behind a screen, nobody would know the difference. All he had to do was come on over and listen to the priest for a little bit until he knew what to do.

The rabbi comes and he and the priest are in the confessional.

First a woman comes in and says, "Father, forgive me for I have sinned."

The priest asks, "What did you do?"

The woman says, "I committed adultery."

"How many times?"

"Three times."

The priest says, "Say two Hail Mary's, put $5.00 in the box, and go and sin no more."

A few minutes later, a man enters the confessional. He says, "Father, forgive me for I have sinned."

The priest asked, "What did you do?"

"I committed adultery."

"How many times?"

The man answered, "Three times."

The priest absolves him, "Say two Hail Mary's, put $5.00 in the box, and go and sin no more."

Then the rabbi tells the priest that he thinks he's got it, so the priest leaves.

A few minutes later, another woman enters and says, "Father, forgive me for I have sinned."

The rabbi asked, "What did you do?"

"I committed adultery."

"How many times?"

Woman said, "Once."

The Rabbi responds, "Go and sin two more times. We have a special this week, three for $5.00!"
