Basic Latin Prayers

Thanks to a post by Against The Grain, we learn of the Pope's urgings to memorize Latin prayers in this article.

He was quoted as saying that learning the prayers in Latin as well as in one's own language "will help Christian faithful of different languages pray together, especially when they gather for special circumstances".

Funny how some of us have started doing this since Benedict's election! It's a good way of praying with him especially during his Angelus.

For those of us who just missed learning the Latin prayers due to the shift to Novus Ordo, here's a link to
Treasury of Latin Prayers. Also check out Adoremus.


The Our Father

PATER noster, qui es in coelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum: adveniat regnum tuum: fiat voluntas tua, sicut in croelo, et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis bodie: et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

The Hail Mary

AVE, Maria, gratia plena; Dominus tecum; benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

The Apostle's Creed


CREDO in Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, Creatorem coeli et terrae; et in Jesum Christum, Filium ejus unicum, Dominum nostrum: qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria Virgine, passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus. Descendit ad inferos; tertia die resurrexit a mortuis; ascendit ad ce!os, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis; inde venturus est judicare vivos et mortuos. Credo in Spiritum Sanctum, Sanctam Ecciesiam Catholicam, sanctorum communionem, remissionem peccatorum, carnis resurrectionem, vitam aternam. Amen.

Since I came of age post Vatican II, the only Latin I know is the Latin I've memorized by singing it. I'll have to get cracking now!

Same here!

I also found it helpful to listen to a CD the Vatican produced several years ago called "Rosary with Pope John Paul II". You can follow along and learn to say the Rosary in Latin!

Oh, that's neat! I've sung the Ave Maria but that is as close as I've gotten to the Rosary in Latin.
