Recently in Lyon, a Frenchman went to his local priest and confessed: “Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. During World War II, I hid a Jewish man in my attic.”
“That wasn't a sin. It was an act of great kindness,” replied the priest.
“But I made him agree to pay 30 francs for every week he stayed.”
“Well that was not especially charitable,” said the priest, “but you did it for a good cause.'”
“Thank you Father,” said the Frenchman, “That is a great relief to me. I have just one more question. Do I have to tell him that the war is over?'
