What happened to the Latin?

I was surprised to learn today that Latin is no longer taught at seminary in India. Seminarians usually can’t read Latin. I’m looking for more information on this: isn’t Latin really necessary anymore in training priests? :confused:

There’re absolutely no Latin books at Catholic bookstores in India, because people don’t buy them. In the UK, all I could find in Latin at the local Catholic bookstore was the entire Missale Romanum. Everything else had to be ordered.

I dont know…my son who is learning latin has no problems getting the books that he needs for the class…all written in Latin by the way :slight_smile:
