True story: Many years ago my mother went to confession to a priest I’ll call Father Brimstone. It had been a particularly stressful week, and Mom confessed that she’d yelled at my sister and me.
Father Brimstone let out a loud gasp and asked, “Would the Blessed Mother do that?”
Mom has no response for that, was a little hurt, and went to other priests for confession after Incident.
