Benedictus XVI Pont. Max. latine locutus est

On Sunday, as I mentioned elsewhere, the Pope spoke a brief message in Latin to a group of students who had made a trip to Rome.  I transcribed what he said.  Here is the text and a short audio clip.

Laetamur Collegii Corderii discipulos magistrumque Romam advenisse;  Quos salutare volumus, eiusdem (eosdem ?) simul adhortantes ut per Latinum sermonem pristinae sapientiae thesauros copiose attingant.

    The Vatican Bollettino is still down, the above link to the audio file does not work; but what does “eiusdem” refer to, in the above sentence?

  2. RJB says:

    I’m one of the students of the Corderius College ( ) and I was there. “eiusdem” must be “eosdem”. My latin teacher wrote the text.
    But can someone please send the mp3-file to me, the link of the audio file don’t work as Andrew said.
