If all the local Catholics went to confession once every two or three weeks, our priests would have to hear 1000 confessions or more at a time.

I seriously doubt they could squeeze 1,000 confessions into the one hour time frame they've allotted for the sacrament.

Makes you want to thank your priest for always being there.

You guys get an hour? Try 15 minutes.
