In an ancient monastery, a new monk arrived to dedicate his life and to join the others copying ancient records. The first thing he noticed was that they were copying by hand, books that had already been copied by hand.

He had to speak up. “Forgive me Father but copying other copies by hand allows many chances for error. How do we know we aren’t copying someone else’s mistakes? Are they ever checked against the originals?”

The old priest was startled! No one had ever suggested that before. “Well, that is a good point, my son. I will take one of these latest books down to the vault and study it against its original document.”

He went deep into the vault where no one else was allowed to enter, and started to study. The day passed, and it was getting late in the evening.

The monks were getting worried about the old priest. Finally one monk started making his way through the old vault, and as he began to think he might get lost, he heard sobbing. He called for the priest.

The sobbing was louder as he came near. He finally found the old priest sitting at a table with both the new copy and the original ancient book in front of him. It was obvious that the priest had been crying for a long time.

“Oh, my Lord!”, sobbed the old priest, “the word is “celebrate”!!! Not “celibate”!!!

bad error !!!
