Jesuits in Rome: for or against Latin...
Word spread through Rome rather quickly today with the news that Fr. Reginald Foster had been fired by the Jesuits from teaching Latin at their Gregorian University last Saturday.
Students from the Gregoriana voiced their feelings today. Many were left wondering, "Why do so many older Catholics have such spite against Latin?" For us younger Catholics, we just want what the Church has given to us.
I asked an elderly Jesuit priest today what he thought of all this mess and his reply was thus: "Latin is part of our radici cristiane!"
