I have read that the early Roman-Catholic-Church was very reluctant to allow recently converted nations to pray in their own local language - this was a problem as the faith spread across Europe and fewer and fewer people werer available to consecrate mass in Latin. But alas for many centuries only priests that spoke latin were allowed to talk to the Lord in heaven and I find something comforting in that thought… yes I’m sure if I were a peasant, which I would certainly be, I too would want my priest communicating with the lord in Latin, and not in English or German or Polish or French - bosch. To that end I would like to speak my prayers in Latin today?
Does anyone out there know of any good sites to get prayers in Latin? I go www.roman-catholic-prayers.com to get my daily recicitations - but they are in English. Sometimes I wonder if some of the older prayers listed here may perhaps have been converted from Latin in medieval times, in which case maybe a language conversion software application could be employed to reconvert them back to Latin? Any ideas?
