The 50th anniversary of the opening of Vaticanum II is coming. One could have thought that it would be a period in which the conciliar errors would be propagated with doubled force. But, as half century ago, the Pope desires to remind and highlight the special role of Latin in the Church. In 1962 John XXIII did it, signing on the altar in St. Peter's Basilica the apostolic constitution Veterum Sapientia. Today Benedict XVI does the same. As Vatican Insider reported, the Pope is to publish a new motu proprio in which he will commission creation of Pontificia Academia Latinitatis - an institution which will promote Latin not only in ecclesiastical, but also in lay environments.
Gratias agimus Sancte Pater!
