Sin of Vanity

A young woman knelt in the confessional and said, “Bless me, Father, for I have sinned.”

“What is it, child?” asked the priest.

The woman said, “Father, I have committed the sin of vanity. Twice a day I gaze at myself in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I am.”

The priest turned, took a good look at the woman, and said, “My dear, I have good news. That isn’t a sin – it’s only a mistake.”
