Latin; the Pangua Lingua

Gloria Patri,
et Filio et Spiritui Sancto
Sicut erat in principio,
et nunc, et semper
et in saecula saeculorum

This very simple praise song sums up all Trintiarian belief in 20 lovely Latin words. Here is a translation with some derivatives in German, English and Italian)

Glory be to the Father (Patri ~pater, vader, father)
and the Son (Filio~ filial)
and the Holy Spirit (Spiritui Sancto~san, saint, sacred)
as it was in the beginning (Sicut erat in principio~principle)
is now (et nunc)
and ever shall be (et semper~ Semper Fi (deles)~ always faithful)
world without end (saecula saeculorum~ secular)

Latin is the language of prayer (Ora) of praise (Gloria), of education (Scholastica) well of Live (vitae)+Love (Ama)+Learn (scholae).

Thought for today from St. Benedictus (goodness): Ora et Labora (Pray and Work)
Or as they say on Prairie Home Companion~ Be well. Do good work.
love mar
