A new young monk arrives at the monastery.

 

He's 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.

 

The new monk goes to the Abbot and points 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've 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 the Abbot banging his head against the wall, sobbing uncontrollably. "Father, what's wrong?" asks the young monk.

 

 

 

With a choking voice, the old Abbot replies
