Never Too Old To Learn To Pray In Latin

I have been learning the Lord’s Prayer and Hail Mary in Latin. My husband and kids think I’ve gone bonkers. “Mom, it’s a dead language!” “How can you learn Latin when your French sucks!” “Sheesh!”

Growing up in Ontario, I recall when Latin was an option available in High School. I never took it. These days, it’s not found in any educational curriculum. Latin is also not used in most mass since Vatican 2. Well, I’m up for the challenge of learning it – with – the help of the Holy Spirit.!


Why learn it? I have been thinking about learning prayers in Latin for a while now, and listening to Shia LaBeouf’s discuss on the mysteries of the Latin Mass, as well as those advocating for TLM, I decided to learn two as part of my daily prayers.

I also started to pray the rosary lead by Cardinal Burke:

God Bless each of us as we journey in knowing Jesus, loving him more deeply, and closely following him.🙏💕
