I hate Latin! — 2 Comments

  1. I’ve been a Catholic for 7 years now and have been teaching at a Catholic school for 12. I grew up protestant and had no exposure to Latin apart from “In excelsis Deo” in Christmas carols. I found that the children loved learning responses in Latin but it was their parents and other teachers who had hangups about not understanding it! I teach at a French immersion school so the kids are already used to using at least two languages and many of them speak several others at home. With our universe becoming more multi-lingual it makes all the more sense to use Latin where we can to bring us together! Dona nobis pacem!
