Funny Confessional story

A few years ago someone here posted such a funny story about being about 8 months pregnant, going to confession (in the old fashioned confessionals...priest in the middle, curtains on either side with a screen in each). She didn't quite fit on the kneeler because her belly was so big and she fell off it. In the process the kneeler broke and then the light outside - activated by the kneeler - didn't work either. I can't remember it all but it was very funny - at least after the fact and the way she told it. At the time I even printed it out and kept it though I don't have a clue what I did with it. Wondering if anyone here IS that person or does anyone who has been here for a while remember the story?

I don't remember seeing it, so that must have been before my time?

Not I.


But maybe that explains what happened to the light on the screen side at our parish....

Hmm, I seem to remember something along those lines. Was it on this branch of the Catholic parenting board, or was it on the ParentsPlace branch that ended up merging here?

May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I can't remember which Trish, but it could have been either one.


I'm off to the Cathedral in 45 minutes for the Chrism Mass this morning. Diocesan choir rehearsal at 9 am and Mass at 10:30 am. Still have to grab a bowl of cereal and get dressed!
