Latinists of today:they live...
Too bad Antonio Cardinal Bacci is dead. The good news is that when he died, his Latin knowledge did not die with him as it lived on through his successor, Fr. Reggie Foster.
If you ever have the opportunity, read Cardinal Bacci's memoirs. The Latin Liturgy Association had them translated from the Italian into English and the booklet is available from them. It's a great read (www.latinliturgy.com) with amazing insight into the battle to preserve Latin in this hostile epoch.
