  •  My problem with Latin: (0+ / 0-)

    Jesus and the Christians of the first few centuries spoke Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew.  

    Roman Latin, Trinitarianism, 'canon law', sacramentalism, etc. all came much later, along with the papacy.  The Latin mass is a dream world.  Priests able to turn bits of vegetable food into the Body of Christ?  Jesus laughed at us that we could not change a hair on our heads and fretted over what garments to wear over our human skins.

      change the fact that the Latin Mass is beautiful to many people.  I did not say it was the language of Christ.  But again - a patronizing comment - but thank you for informing me - lest I did not know this.
