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.
