The Rosary in Latin

"The use of the Latin language prevailing in a great part of the Church affords at once an imposing sign of unity and an effective safeguard against the corruption of true doctrine." (Pope Pius XII)

Why Pray the Rosary in Latin?

"In addition, the Latin language 'can be called truly catholic.' It has been consecrated through constant use by the Apostolic See, the mother and teacher of all Churches, and must be esteemed 'a treasure...of incomparable worth.' It is...a most effective bond, binding the Church of today with that of the past and of the future in wonderful continuity." (Pope John XXIII, "Veterum Sapientia", 1962 A.D.)

Many English-speaking Catholics find that praying the Rosary in Latin brings many benefits. This majestic language is the official Language of the Church. By praying in Latin, you express your unity with the Roman Catholic Church. Catholics who learn to pray the Rosary in Latin ("the language of the angels") can go anywhere and pray the Rosary with their follow Catholics "in one voice", without being affected by language barriers. Praying in Latin also links Catholics to the past; your Catholic ancestors and the saints prayed in Latin! Also, Popes, Saints, and councils recommend the use of Latin! Latin helps uplift your mind to God, and you may even find that praying in Latin helps you to better focus on the mysteries of the Rosary and avoid distractions. Some consider learning and praying the Rosary prayers in Latin a special act for the glory of God. You should note that it is not very difficult to learn the small amount of Latin needed to pray the Rosary in Latin. (Click here for Latin prayers; click here for more benefits of Latin)

Catholics should be aware that the enemies of the Church have always hated our use of the Latin language and have tried to discourage its use. As Dom Gueranger has stated, "Hatred for the Latin language is inborn in the heart of all the enemies of Rome. They recognize it as the bond of Catholics throughout the universe, as the arsenal of orthodoxy against the subtleties of the sectarian spirit. They consider it the most efficient weapon of the papacy." Don't let your enemies discourage you from praying in Latin and teaching it to your children!

All Are Called to Preserve the Rich Traditions of Our Glorious Faith!

Latin Mass & Catholic Tradition (Reflections)

"And We also, impelled by the weightiest of reasons...are fully determined to restore this [Latin] language to its position of honor, and to do all We can to promote its study and use. The employment of Latin has recently been contested in many quarters, and many are asking what the mind of the Apostolic See is in this matter. We have therefore decided to issue the timely directives... so as to ensure that the ancient and uninterrupted use of Latin be maintained and, where necessary, restored." (Pope John XXIII, "Veterum Sapientia", 1962 A.D.)

Et in Jesum Christum, Filium ejus unicum, Dominum nostrum: qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria Virgine, passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus: descendit ad inferos; tertia die resurrexit a mortuis; ascendit ad cælos, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis: inde venturus est judicare vivos et mortuos. Credo in Spiritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclesiam catholicam, Sanctorum communionem, remissionem peccatorum, carnis resurrectionem, vitam æternam. Amen.

The Our Father in Latin (Pater Noster)  [Listen to Recording]

Pater Noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie.

The Hail Holy Queen in Latin (Salve Regina)

Salve Regina, Mater misericordiæ: vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra salve. Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Hevæ. Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle. Eia ergo, Advocata nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte. Et Jesum benedictum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exsilium ostende. O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria.

V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genetrix. 

R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

Deus, cujus Unigenitus per vitam, mortem et resurrectionem suam nobis salutis aeternae praemia comparavit: concede, quaesumus; ut, haec mysteria sacratissimo beatae Mariae Virginis Rosario recolentes, et imitemur quod continent, et quod promittunt, assequamur. Per eumdem Dominum.
