Latin!

This may not be the correct place for this, but I thought it might be the most fitting.

I am looking for a webpage perhaps with all the prayers in Latin on it. But here is the trick, I need it to come with a phonic version or an mp3 or something so I know how to say it!

Anything involving the common Catholic prayers, or any of the songs or whatnot during the Mass. (We don’t get much latin at my parish, so I can’t pronounce it for beans)

Thanks in advance!

This is some guy’s blog!

It has Latin prayers of the Rosary. Hope that helps!

I’m learning the Pater Noster in Latin from this site. Someone on this forum passed it on to me.

This may be helpful. Let’s bring back Latin into Catholicism in a huge way. The Holy Father has encouraged us to do so.

Papal recommendations on the use of Latin

“The employment of Latin has recently been contested in some quarters, and many are asking what the mind of the Apostolic See is in this matter. We have therefore decided to issue the timely directives contained in this document, so as to ensure that the ancient and uninterrupted use of Latin be maintained and, where necessary, restored…” (Pope John XXIII, Feb 22, 1962, Veterum Sapientia)

VATICAN, Feb 21, 2002 – Pope John Paul II recommended the use of Latin in the Roman liturgy and in seminary training…

In a message to a conference held at the Salesian University in Rome, the (then) Holy Father emphasized that Latin remains the official language of the Catholic Church, and expressed his desire that “the love of that language would grow ever strong among candidates for the priesthood.” The Pope’s message itself was written in Latin, and read by Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Vatican Secretary of State.

The conference to which the Pope addressed this message was commemorating the 40th anniversary of Veterum Sapientia, the apostolic constitution in which Pope John XXIII wrote of the importance of Latin as an important part of “the patrimony of human civilization.” Pope John Paul underlined the same message, pointing out that the use of Latin “is an indispensable condition for a proper relationship between modernity and antiquity, for dialogue among different cultures, and for reaffirming the identity of the Catholic priesthood.”

Pope Benedict urges catholics to learn prayers in Latin

Presenting the new “Compendium of the Cathechism of the Catholic Church” Pope Benedict has urged Catholics around the world to memorize the most common Catholic prayers in Latin. Learning the prayers in Latin as well as in one’s own language “will help Christian faithful of different languages [to] pray together, especially when they gather for special circumstances” the pope said on 28 June 2005 as he distributed the italian version of the compendium, which included an appendix with the Latin texts of many traditional prayers, including the Sign of the Cross, the Gloria, the Hail Mary and Come, Holy Spirit. The pope said he hoped the compendium, a 200-page synthesis of the voluminous 1992 catechism, would give Catholics and non-Catholics easy access to the basic and essential tenets of the Catholic faith.

I had the same problem you did, that is trying to find something with the pronounacation and meaning of the words…I found this site very helpful.
