An elderly Italian man who lived in the outskirts of Monte Casino went to the local church for confession.

He said: "Father, during World War II, a beautiful woman knocked on my door and asked me to hide her from the enemy. So I hid her in my attic."

The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did, my son, and you have no need to confess that."

"It's worse than that, Father. She started to repay me with sexual favours."

The priest said: "By doing that, you were both committing a sin. However, two people together under those circumstances are greatly tempted to act that way. If you are truly sorry for your actions, you are forgiven."

"Thank you Father. That's a great load off my mind. But I have one more question."

"And what is that?" asked the priest.

"Should I tell her the war is over?"
