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.:)

That is rather good news. When it comes to decorating -at least Catholic – churches, then Latin is the onlyrealistic option as it still remains the official language of the Church.
