A PEACEFUL AND JOYFUL WEEK
where Latin will be our common language. For the Latin language is even today the living language of the Church; it is a key which opens the spiritual treasury of the entire Christian era. During this week we will have a unique opportunity to speak and understand Latin better, and to strengthen our love of God and our Catholic Faith.
YOU WILL STAY
at the Visitation Monastery, 2300 Spring Hill Avenue, Mobile, Alabama. Founded in 1833, the buildings of this beautiful monastery savor both of the monasteries of Europe and of the American Old South. They are designated as Historic American Buildings and have received many awards for architectural excellence. It is a contemplative place, surrounded by pleasant grounds all around. Very good food will be served to you breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The bedrooms are pleasant and clean. All the buildings and rooms are air conditioned. The cost to stay is very reasonable; room and meals are included in the one price.
DON’T BE NERVOUS
Using the living Latin language will not be difficult for you, because we proceed in a different way. (If this is the first time you are coming to a Cenaculum, a small dictionary might be helpful.) Come without the fear of making errors. There are no critics among us. In the company of others you will experience Latin as a truly living language, completely suitable for the times in which we live. With practice you will learn useful expressions for cultivating Latin conversation. By speaking together, listening, and laughing, the Latin we knew from our previous studies will be liberated and transformed into a real means of communication.
for the good of Holy Mother Church, for the good of Catholic Culture, for our own good.
