Monastery Life
A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks
in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand.
He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the
original manuscript. So, the new monk goes to the head abbot to question
this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it
would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all
of the subsequent copies.
The head monk, says, 'We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you
make a good point, my son.'
He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts
are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't been opened
for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot.
So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him banging
his head against the wall and wailing.
'We missed the R ! We missed the R !
We missed the R !'
His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably. The young
monk asks the old abbot, 'What's wrong, father?'With A choking voice,
the old abbot replies,
'The word was...
CELEBRATE!!!'

Regards,

Alan
