Latin, the Queen of the Sacred Arts.

The story of Latin and its use in the Church is of course a remarkable tale. Just as remarkable is the story of Father Reginald Foster and his love for the Church, the Latin language and sharing his expertise. Of course, Father Foster has immense patience with his students and their Latin difficulties. However, I am sure if I were in his Latin class, his patience would wear thin. If you need to confirm this notion, just ask Msgr. "Mumbles" McBride, Professor Emeritus of Latin at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary. My Germanic pronunciation of Cicero, contributed to his gray hair and receding hairline.
