December 15th – My Advent calendar

December 15 - My advent calendar

Factum est autem in diebus illis, exiit edictum a Cæsare Augusto ut describeretur universus orbis.

Today I have the Christmas Gospel in Latin.

A language that is still used today in so many ways: Medicine, mathematics, chemistry.

You can even hear the preaching in Latin in the church.

Even today we still use words that come from Latin and maybe we don’t even know it. Like schola = school or pictura = picture or Semper Fideles, the marines’ motto

You see, for a “dead” language, Latin is still pretty much alive.
