That is very splendid.

If we have problems about the number of letters, that can be reduced

1. by eliminating the punctuation

2. if we need further to reduce the number of letters, then, we could resort to abbreviations. However, as these are a little tricky, Praxiteles would have to call on the services of a Latinist.

What do you think.

Call on the services of a Latinist Prax? no not at all..I’ve spoken to the P.P & he’s very happy to go with your suggestions.

I’m constantly surprised by how few P.PS (even elder ones) seem confident enough to decipher or translate Latin competently. . I’m beginning to think that some of them can’t even read it!

A couple of times I’ve had to relinquish & use English texts instead when some sticky committee member can’t get their heads around it.

I love the use of Latin as decoration in Church interiors. . It adds to the deeper sense of the great mystery.
Probably because no one understands it.:)

One from the Early collection.
