REMINDER: Encore Session 8 of 7!

Hello everyone!

Just a reminder that the Encore Session 8 of 7 will be on this coming Saturday, 1 Aug @ St. Elizabeth’s Room, 7.15pm.

We’ll do a bit of grammar, and lots of chanting – aka Catholic karaoke =P – and some fairy tales in Latin! It’ll just be a session of fun!

See you there!

  1. Hi,

    Pope Benedict XVI mentioned that Cats need to know 4 latin prayers. May I know where (eg encyclicals) can I reference this from?

    Thank you!

    • Hello!
      Ok… I think this is the document: http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/speeches/2005/june/documents/hf_ben-xvi_spe_20050628_compendium_en.html

      But then again, I’m sure there’s another document, but I can’t find it. Anyway, Pope Benedict said:

      “In each one of the translations, the majority of the prayers will also be presented in Latin. Learning them, even in this language, will make it easier for the Christian faithful who speak different languages to pray together, especially when they meet for special circumstances. As I said in 1997, on the occasion of the presentation to my Venerable Predecessor of the Typical Edition in Latin of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “Precisely in the multiplicity of languages and cultures, Latin, for so many centuries the vehicle and instrument of Christian culture, not only guarantees continuity with our roots but continues to be as relevant as ever for strengthening the bonds of unity of the faith in the communion of the Church”. ”

      So it’s whatever prayers you can find in the Compendium – we ought to know it. Haha… So it’s not just the 4 prayers.

  2. Hey Jonathan, I was away and wasn’t able to attend the Session 8/7. Do you have notes for that one?

    • Hello! There wasn’t really notes. I just printed 3 little pigs in latin. =P and some activity sheets from the Minimus book. If you want, I can re-print them for you. =)
