Symbolum Apostolorum: The Apostles' Creed


Pope Benedict may be making some changes to liturgy in order to make use of more Latin.

And so we present...

Latin Lesson # 6

CREDO in Deum Patrem omnipotentem, Creatorem caeli et terrae.
I BELIEVE in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

Et in Iesum Christum, Filium eius unicum, Dominum nostrum,
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.

qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria Virgine,
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus, descendit ad inferos,
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead.

tertia die resurrexit a mortuis, ascendit ad caelos, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis, On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.

inde venturus est iudicare vivos et mortuos.
From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

Credo in Spiritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclesiam catholicam, sanctorum communionem, remissionem peccatorum, carnis resurrectionem, vitam aeternam. Amen.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
