"It is not so much an excellent thing to know Latin, as it is a shame not to know it." -- Pope John Paul II
unfortunately, the extent of my latin ranges only from PRO TEXANA (of course) to several phrases of the gloria, the lord's prayer, and agnus dei; but only because we sing them at Mass, and even then i wouldn't recognize them without an organ playing overhead.
yesterday, i bought the most beautiful pink and silver bracelet that has four catholic medals that i've never seen before -- the bracelet is from mexico so i'm guessing these are popular medals down south. i understand the ones in spanish, but one of them has a picture of Our Lord looking heavenward and it reads: ECCE HOMO. i'm guessing it's latin for something man. is this what pilate said when presenting Christ to the crowds?
