I have recently learned from the blog of The HornÃƒÂ©d One, that the Devil hates Latin.
Well, I already knew that. Still, repetita iuvant, right?
Remember, that the Devil’s hate for us is so great that he will endure even the agony of proximity to sacramentals and even the Eucharist just to have a chance to get at us. So, I say let’s make him suffer as much as we possibly can. And what better way to do that then use lots of Latin? Latin is, after all, the preferred language for the annoying of all those who are wicked.
Still, a quip or two from Ol’ Scratch’s blog will convince even the scoffer.
The Sniveller had some hard drive problems. I think it must have been due to all the people reading about Latin on this blog. Perpend:
My hard drive crashed. I still haven’t gotten a new one. I think it had something to do with the fact that Catholics are praying in Latin. That, and its really really hot down here, which can’t be good for a computer either.
The DeceivÃƒÂ©d One also offered this:
Not only is it holy week, which ends with one of the only days where every Catholic goes to church, but that damn Catechism Compendium thing came out. It even has prayrs in latin! Freaking Latin! I HATE LATIN!
Well, folks, there it is.
Let’s all recite together the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel just to irritate the Enemy, and throw some Holy Water around while you’re at it:
Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in praelio.
Contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur.
Tuque princeps militiae caelestis,
Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo
divina virtute in infernum detrude.
