Monks and celibasy

Recommended Posts

Guest imported_Europe

A new young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to help 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 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 Abbot says, "We have been copying

from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son".

 

So, he goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscript is held in a locked vault that hasn't been opened

for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot.

 

Eventually the young monk gets worried and goes downstairs to look for

him. He sees him banging his head against the wall. His forehead is all

bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably. The young monk asks the old abbot, "What's wrong, father?" In a choking voice, the old abbot replies,

"The word is CELEBRATE, not CELIBATE!"
