Celibate or Celebrate? That is the typo…
Once upon a time…
There was a room filled with impeccably trained scribes with volumes of vellum, gallons of ink, working diligently at their desks – carefully transcribing page after page of the holy Bible.
Think: Medieval times – pre-Gutenberg and the famed printing press.
The only noise heard was the scratching of quills flying over the pages… when one day- Brother Eagle Eye the Elder, raised his hand and said, “ Brothers! Stop your writing! I have found an error.”
The room was silent.
He continued, “It says here. Let it be known, all priests should plan to celebrate. Oh, Brother! The word is not ‘celibate.’ The word we have erroneously copied should be celebrate! Stop your quills!”
The sea of faces before him scowled in disbelief and then realized-divine intervention – the Holy Spirit had come upon them.
The congregation of monks partied like it was 454 AD
