So anyway…the Pope decided he wants to check Church doctrine back to the original sources documents in order to see if any mistakes had been made during translations over the years…and he assigns a pious monk to do the job.
Years of research later, the Pope encounters the monk roaming the halls of a Vatican palace moaning, “Oh, Lord, we left out the “r.”
So the Pope asks the distraught monk what was bothering him.
“Holiness,” the monk replies, “we left out the ‘r’—and that is why we have been having all these problems.”
“Father,” says the Pope kindly to the monk, “its just a letter…just an “r”…it cannot be all that important. One word with an “r” missing cannot be the source of any problems. What was the word?”
The monk responds, “The word is ‘celebrate’, Holiness.”
You may or may not burn in Hell for that one, Frank.
Im sorry, I never heard it before. I thought it pretty funny.
just one letter can cause a lot of trouble
I've heard it hundreds of times and I still think it's funny, too.
What are you sorry for?
