Today’s First Penance Service has not come about by happenstance.  My sincere gratitude to Ms. Catherine Tolnay and all those who have instructed the youngsters who are well prepared.  Let me share a 1st Confession story.  A friend who has five children takes them to Confession once a month.  When his youngest child, a lovely daughter, came back to the pew to be with her father, she knelt down in prayer.  Dad was impressed until he sensed that his daughter was starting to cry.  “What’s the matter?”  She replied, “It’s what Father said to me.”  “Tell me” Dad said.  “She replied, “Well, he told me to say two Hail Mary prayers for my penance. (sob, sob) “What is wrong with that? You know the Hail Mary.”  “Yes, she said, but I only know one Hail Mary and he said to say two!!!!!!
