Et in Iesum Christum, Filium eius unicum, Dominum nostrum, qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria Virgine, passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus, descendit ad infernos, tertia die resurrexit a mortuis, ascendit ad caelos, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis, inde venturus est iudicare vivos et mortuos. Credo in Spiritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclesiam catholicam, sanctorum communionem, remissionem peccatorum, carnis resurrectionem et vitam aeternam. Amen.

I’ve been trying to teach myself Latin prayers and I’m struggling with a word from the Apostles Creed. Can someone tell me how to pronounce the word “eius”? Is it (AI-eee-oos)?

Also, from the Magnificat, I’m not sure about “efficiamur promissionibus” (eff-eee-chee-AH-moor pro-mees-eee-OH-nee-boos?) , “ecce ancilla” (ETCH-chay ahn-CHEE-la? ) and “tiavit” (tee-AH-veet?)

I’m also confused about when the letter “e” is pronounced “eh” and when it is “ay”. I always struggle with the hymn “Adeste Fideles” Is it (Ah-DES-tay Fee-DAY-less) ?

Any help from the Latin experts would be GREATLY appreciated. I wish there was a thread for Latin pronunciation… maybe I’ll start one someday!

God Bless,
Gary

eius is pronounced (ay-oos) ei is a dipthong

you are correct for the efficiamur promissionibus

ecce ancilla is (etche ahn chee la)

Adeste is properly (ah des te) and Fideles is (Fee De Less)

Remember that in Latin all vowels are round just like in Spanish and Italian. All consonants are hard except some minor linguistic changes for Ecclesial Latin where the c is a ch but can be a k sound and the g can be a dz sound. Also remember that there is no j in Latin so if you see a j it is pronounced like an i. Also it is not correct to say that the h is no pronounced rather it is like the Greek breath marks so it is a slight breath or h sound before the vowel. So Hodie is not pronounced odie but rather has a slight h before the o.

Neat, thanks! I’m trying to learn them all, but have only gotten the glory be and the hail mary down. I get it right some day!!!

:gopray2:
Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio,
contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:
tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo,
divina virtute, in infernum detrude. Amen.

:gopray2:
Anima Christi, sanctifica me.
Corpus Christi, salva me.
Sanguis Christi, inebria me.
Aqua lateris Christi, lava me.
Passio Christi, conforta me.
O bone Iesu, exaudi me.
Intra tua vulnera absconde me.
Ne permittas me separari a te.
Ab hoste maligno defende me.
In hora mortis meae voca me, et iube me venire ad te,
ut cum Sanctis tuis laudem te in saecula saeculorum. Amen

I orginally did not respond to this, since **mosher **took care of the questions, but I did want to note a bit of constructive criticism:

[/quote]

Those phrases are not found in the Magnificat (*tiavit is not even a word, but I presume you mean the latter syllables or nuntiavit). They appear in the Angelus. Both prayers are well worth learning.

A [thread=99745]short one[/thread] came and went just the other day… There have undoubtedly been others.

:gopray2:
Magnificat anima mea Dominum,
et exultavit spiritus meus in Deo salvatore meo,
quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae.
Ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes,
quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est,
et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericordia eius in progenies et progenies
timentibus eum.
Fecit potentiam in brachio suo,
dispersit superbos mente cordi sui;
deposuit potentes de sede
et exaltavit humiles;
esurientes implevit bonis
et divites dimisit inanes.
Suscepit Israel puerum suum,
recordatus misericordiae,
sicut locutus est ad patres nostros,
Abraham et semini eius in saecula.

:gopray2:
*V. Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae
R. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.

Ave…

V. Ecce ancilla Domini
R. Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.

Ave…

V. Et Verbum caro factum est
R. Et habitavit in nobis.

Ave…

V. Ora pro nobis, Sancta Dei Genetrix
R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

Oremus: Gratiam tuam, quaesumus, Domine, mentibus nostris infunde; ut qui, Angelo nuntiante, Christi Filii tui incarnationem cognovimus, per passionem eius et crucem, ad resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.*

I am going by what I remember from a Latin version of a mass I sang in choir so I amy have some of it wrong and definately will have the spelliong worng.

The Gloria:
Gloria in excelcius deo

Et en tera pax ominibus. Bone valum tanits
Et beneded bene dichi mus te. Adoramus te glorifica mus te
Gracias te gimus tibi. Proter nanun glorificatu um
Domiu deos rexelestis Deus pa ter omipotense.
Dominiu filiunu genite. Jesu Christe
Dominu Deus Agnus Dei. Flius Patris

Qui to lis peca ta mundi. Mi se re re no bis
Qui to lis peca mundi Sushi peca ta precaxiomem no stram
quisa dexta… no stram? never could remember that part
quo niam tusolus sanctus quo niam tusulus. Tusulus a tis is mus
Jesu Christe Cum Sanctu Spritus
In Gloria Peca Patris Amen.

I probabyl mispelled every word but oh well. I haven’t had a chance to sing that chant in more than 10 years and it was fun to go over it in my head.

Thanks for the link Marilena, I’m checking it out right now.

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio,

divina virtute, in infernum detrude. Amen.

:gopray2:
Salva nos Domine vigilantes, custodi nos dormientes ut vigilemus cum Christo, et requiescamus in pace.

For pronuciation purposes I think this this and this are pretty fair, I have actually burnt these prayers to a disc and listen to them on the way to work for practice.

:gopray2:
Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine secundum verbum tuum in pace:
Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum
Quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum:
Lumen ad revelationem gentium, et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.
