An online journal that’s all in Latin! As much as I like to say that Catholic traditionalism isn’t about Latin*, this is a beautiful language that doesn’t seem dead to me thanks to so much exposure to it in its modern forms like Spanish and Italian. All it takes to make it come alive is to pronounce it the ecclesiastical way, just like Italian (as was done in Mel Gibson’s The Passion even though it probably wasn’t historically right).

*Recently in Pontifications’ comments I used the Byzantine Rite and non-Roman rites in general as examples proving that but this was ignored (by people trying to diss the Roman Mass) — such simply isn’t on the radar of many in ‘the one, Irish, Catholic and apostolic church’ as Fr Peter Robinson says.
