What is the statute of limitations for clearing the air with someone after you've been deceiving them for a considerable amount of time and after how many repetitions does a lie become the truth?

An elderly Italian woman went to her parish priest and asked if he would hear her confession.

"Of course, my child," said the priest, who was decades younger than her.

"Well, Father, at the beginning of World War II, a handsome man knocked on my door and asked me to hide him from the Germans; I hid him in my attic, and they never found him."

"Wow! That's a charitable and wonderful thing you did, my daughter, and nothing that you need confess," said the priest.

"It gets worse, Father," groaned the old woman.

"I was weak, and told him that he had to pay for renting the attic with...ah...romantic favors," she continued, embarrassed. "You see my fiancé had died in the war some years ago, and I was lonely."

"Well, it was a very difficult time, and you took a large risk - you would have suffered terribly at their hands if the Germans had found you hiding him; I know that God, in his wisdom and mercy, will balance the good and the evil, and judge you kindly," said the priest, thoughtfully, to put the old woman's soul at ease.

"Thank you so much, Father," said the old woman, relieved. "That's a load off my mind. Can I ask one more question?"

"Of course, my child," said the priest.

"Do I need to tell him that the war is over?"

Well...I'm not sure how many Hail Marys would get the old lady off the hook for this particular deception! The poor priest!
