Latin is back and is "in". According to the article in Daily Telegraph (Mirabile dictu), his Holiness pope Benedict XVI. is preparing the ground for the glorious comeback of Latin into the life of the Church and beyond. The new institution will bear a name Pontificia Academia Latinitatis and its main purpose will be to promote the study of Latin language not only in the Church, but also among "civilians". That's certainly a good step forward, because too many so called "liberal" or "progressive" Catholics literally hate Latin. On the other hand and to my greatest shock, I've discovered today a news website in Latin! (Latin news). This is more than passion, this must be a real love!
