Lingua Latina saepe dicitur mortua esse.


I am taking a page from Ranter's Toothy Tuesday series.  I will present quotations from a book I am reading.

This book comes in not useful at all when translating the 3rd TYPICAL EDITION OF THE GIRM( 2002)
But I've decided to offer quotations from this book:

Beard, Henry. (Barbatus, Henricus) X-Treme Latin: All the Latin you need to know for surviving the 21st Century. Headline, London, 2005

I will give  you the Latin and you do your best to give the English.  You are NOT allowed to cheat, by using any translating program or internet thingy.  Wikipedia is definitely out.  Should point out some of the language is adult rated.

First Up:

~~Lingua Latina saepe dicitur mortua esse.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
