As Reuters reports, “Pope ditches Latin as official language of Vatican synod.” The change was announced at the beginning of the deliberations this morning.
Hmmm, if I were a participant I would have wanted to know ahead of time to brush up on Italian.
And I have mixed feelings about Italian being the language of the synod, though I get it that that’s the working language of the Vatican. For my part I think I’d do better in Latin than Italian.
Not because my Latin is so great, but because my Italian is so bad.
