A monk scribe in a monastery pauses before he pens the next letter and the head monk notices the frown on his face. "Are you going to continue copying Holy Scripture, my son?"
The scribe looked at his master and said, "No, Master. We are copying from copies. If we made a mistake, we would carry that mistake into our new copies."
The Master stopped all the scribes work and took one of the copies down to the crypt where the oldest Scripture had been stored. All the scribes waited for a very long time for his return. Finally, the monk who originally stopped got up to go to the crypt. There he found his Master and asked, "What is wrong? Why haven't you returned."
The master, sobbing, looked up from the scripture he had been checking all these hours and said, "It says 'celebrate'."
