This the best use for a confession box in my opinion.

Some Catholics may well sweat in the confessional as they admit to things they shouldn't have done. But Vienna's archdiocese has ruled that the box-like structure cannot be turned into a sauna.

Bidding on a confessional described on eBay as ideal for conversion into a one-person sauna, a small bar or a children's playhouse ended when the archdiocese stepped in.

Archdiocese spokesman Erich Leitenberger said yesterday that auctioning "objects that were used for dispensing the sacraments is not acceptable".

The confessional was offered for auction by a Vienna church undergoing renovations.

Curiously, the highest reported amount offered before the item was pulled from the internet on Monday was €666.66.

And I was mad when a guy with a funny hat stole my future sauna.
