Anyone know Latin?

I'm looking for the serenity prayer in Latin... You know the one,

"Please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

Anyone??

Hey baby! You ever been on the back of an expensive sportbike??

For thee, my Lord, for thee.

Power hath descended forth from Thy hand

Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.

So we shall flow a river forth to Thee

And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

I'm sure Chuck just knows google, LOL even thought he might have been alive when Latin was not a dead language yet.

While latin is not spoken language anymore, there are still a lot of colleges that teach it. Law and science still use a lot of Latin for names, so while not a spoken language it still relevant and cool (IMHO).

While in the topic, one huge misconception... Latin does not = Hispanic. Latin refers anyone that speaks a romance language, or a language derived from Latin.. Spanish being the most spoken, followed by Portuguese, French, Italian, Romanian and Catalan.

You are correct...

I tried for a couple semesters to get into a Latin class, but if you go to a University that has a medical school, you can forget about gettin' in. All th med students fill 'em up.

A lot of Catholic churches still have a "high mass" spoken in Latin, which is a throw-back to a time when learning the Bible was a privelage that excluded the lower classes.

I tried reading this out loud just now and a bolt of lightning struck the tree outside my window.

Well, for you fallen catholics, you should read the Exorcist, by William Peter Blatty. Lots of good latin stuff in there. "can you spare a quarter for an old altar boy faddah?"

I think that is more of a combination of illiteracy in the Middle Ages and the fact that the printing press wasn't invented until the mid-1400s and before that books were super-expensive because they had to be copied by hand (ironically, by Catholic monks) which was a long and pain-staking process.

I think there are only about 3 or 4 churches in the Chicago archdiocese that offer the old-time Latin mass.
