i just wanna share this.,.,.,
Last Monday, i went to our bed and opened my little black book organizer and I read that 7pm Monday is confession day. I checked the clocked and I was completely shocked, it is 7:35pm and I am late for the confession. I hurriedly dress up and told my husband to get ready and drop me off to the church. At the church, I saw the priest and asked him nicely "Father, is the confession is still ongoing?" he rudely answered "It started 7:00" and I replied "Oh, so I am lil late" he then looked at his watch and rudely replied "Yeah, 45 mins". So, what I did is I just knelt down and pray while my husband is waiting on me. After I prayed, hubby told me "Don't you think that he was rude to you?" i said "Yeah he is" then we drove back home.
I know that I am already late just right after I read my organizer but then I still tried to go as i thought and I was hoping that the church is still open. I know I was late, but can't he talk to me in a nice way? I mean, I asked him nicely so why be mean? I actually almost ask him "Are you sure you are a priest?" lol! In the Parochial Church in the Philippines where i usually attend mass, they usually have 3 to 4 priests during confession and the confession last for 2 hours plus sometimes they extend the time if there are still people coming over to confess. In Philippines, most of the priest that i met are respectful and courteous to people. But now i know why most of the American i met told me that priests and nuns are mean and rude. It's not that I didn't believed in them, but, its just i haven't experienced any mean nun or priest. I have never met a rude American til I met him and it is sad to say that he is a priest. And, to tell you the truth, he made me disappointed and made me not wanting to attend Catholic mass here in the US again. Can you blame me?
