Since Pius IX is apparently tiring of posting his "WTMIS" to amuse/scandalize us, we have decided that for the edification of our dear readers we will begin posting a link and review for a website (or blog) each week.
This week's website is "Thesaurus Precum Latinarum"
Run by one Michael Martin, this site is an excellent resource for Latin prayers and liturgical texts. All texts are well organized in indexes by name and date of composition. This site also features a couple files of prayerbooks laid out by Mr. Martin which we find very useful.
Latin is of course the official language of the Catholic Church and should be used by all for prayer, particular the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - but we will save the rant on the current disuse of Latin for another time. Right now, we wish to encourage our readers to look at this excellent site and perhaps, if they do not yet know any prayers in this sacred tongue, to make an effort to learn them now. For those of us who do know some already, we believe this is an invaluable site and thank Mr. Martin for his hard work and dedication.
