News: Italian couple "caught" during morning mass.

In our series of "odd Italian news":

An Italian couple who were caught having sex in a church confessional box while morning Mass have repented and made peace with the local bishop.

The couple, in their early 30s, were detained by police earlier this month after being caught making love in the confessional box in the cathedral of northern Cesena. They were cautioned for obscene acts in public and disturbing a religious function.

Their lawyer said they had been drinking all night and realized they had gone too far. The couple met with the local bishop and asked for his forgiveness.

Last week the bishop celebrated a "Mass of reparation" in the cathedral where the confessional box incident took place to make up for the sacrilege. (Full)

[Ed: I guess the couple took the church's "Message of Love" too literal.]
