December 15th – 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.

さて,そのころ,全世界の住民登録をせよという布告が,カエサル・アウグストゥスから出た。

The Gospel of Christmas in Japanese.
Japanese is the favourite language of my godchild. This year she spent 4 months at the University of Tokyo to learn the language.
Sweetie, today is for you ❤ ❤ ❤
