Latin
« on: September 01, 2013, 02:58:44 PM »
Does any of the WR parishes or monasteries celebrate services in Latin or include some Latin in their services?
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

Yes.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Well that was informative. :P Is there any pattern for use of Latin or is it up to priest? Does bishops restrict use of non-vernacular language?

I don't know if this is related, but I read 2 Esdras in Latin today...  :angel:
"Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." (St. Manuel II Palaiologos)

"Do not be ashamed to enter again into the Church. Be ashamed when you sin. Do not be ashamed when you repent." (St. John Chrysostom)

"Now one cannot be a half-hearted Christian, but only entirely or not at all." (Fr. Seraphim Rose)

The Antiochian rite of St. Gregory is mostly in traditional English, but it also uses Latin (for the dismissal), Hebrew (Amen), and Greek (Kyrie eleison and the Good Friday reproaches).

No pattern that I know of.  No restriction that I know of either.

Christminster uses a little Latin now and again as well I think, but from what I remember visiting there it's not a significant proportion of the services, the bulk of which are in English.
"This is the Apostolic Faith, the Orthodox Faith, and the Faith of the Fathers. Having this wonderful treasure, let us preserve it, let us keep it, and let us also use it in such a way that this treasure becomes the victory of Christ in us and in His Church." ~ St. Severus of Antioch ~
