The Nervous Newly Ordained Priest Learning About Confessions
?I?ve got a few suggestions?, he says. ?Try folding your arms over your chest and rub your chin with one hand?.
The new priest tries this.
?Very good?, says his senior. ?Now try saying things like 'I see', 'I understand' and 'Yes, go on'?.
The younger priest practises these sayings, too.
?Well done,? says the older priest. ?Don't you think that's better than slapping your knee and saying: ?No way! What happened next??
