Supplement to Latin Study: Psalms, Hymns, and Prayers
« on: April 04, 2011, 09:40:AM »
I was thinking in response to the suggestion of another poster, that perhaps as a supplement we could go through the Latin of certain Psalms, Hymns, and Prayers.  I could provide the Latin text with a Latin-English vocabulary and then answer any questions people have about the translation.
The greatest of all misfortunes is never to have known Jesus Christ: yet such a state is free from the sin of obstinancy and ingratitude. But first to have known Him, and afterwards to deny or forget Him, is a crime so foul and so insane that it seems impossible for any man to be guilty of it. For Christ is the fountain-head of all good.  --- Leo XIII, Tametsi

Yes please.

Perhaps the Psalms for Sunday Lauds and Vespers, as these are also used for most first class feasts?
Remember, sometimes when you ask "WWJD?", the answer will be  "Knock over all the tables and trash the joint!"

Placet!

Good idea from Allan on the Sunday Psalms. 

Thanks CI! )

Thanks. People always forget that Christians are the real rebels. Always have been.  That's why we can't tremble at the thought of secular authorities stripping us of tax shelters, hospitals, licenses to run institutions like adoption agencies, all because we won't allow things contrary to truth.  Rob us, kick us, kill us.  We will never yield.  Never.

I forget who said it, but it was something along the lines of  "God never promised that His Church would be wealthy, with beautiful cathedrals and precious art.  He never promised we would convert everyone, or not suffer injustice.  In fact, He never promised anything at all about how He would establish His kingdom.  All we know is that He will, and the gates of hell shall never prevail against His Church."
