Benedict XVI does not speak Latin, therefore, the Holy See cannot claim and impose Latin as its « official language »
Benedict XVI does not speak Latin at all. He may have taken a course in Latin as a seminarian in order to be able to “read” the Mass in Latin. But he cannot converse in Latin. He does not know how to write a letter in Latin.
John Paul II could not speak Latin either. He spoke 5 languages and could say a few words in other languages, but he could never converse in Latin. All his encyclicals were translated by a handful of Ltin scholars at the Vatican. And these Latin scholars do not converse in Latin among themselves either.
All Cardinals and Bishops do not know how to speak in Latin. All priests today do not speak Latin either. They barely say a few words of Latin for Mass.
For a language to be an "official language", it must be the daily operative language used in that country for all its governmental and business functions. But no one at the Vatican can speak in Latin. Not even the Swiss Guard Army.
The Holy See is the Headquarter of the Catholic Church and is located at the Vatican. The Holy See is comprised of the Pope, Cardinals and Bishops and a few selected priests, mostly Opus Dei members. But none of them know how to speak in Latin. They can conduct the Mass in Latin, because they can “read” Latin. But “reading Latin” does not make it a “language”. Reciting the (magic sorcery) formula of the Mass is not a language.
No one in the Holy See can converse in Latin. Therefore, Latin is a farce, a pathological lie and a fictitious claim that it is the “official language of the Holy See.” It is time that this blatant falsehood of the Vatican ends in this century.
There was a time that Latin Mass was held in all Catholic countries in the world. But since the later part of the 20th century, especially with Vatican II, Latin Mass became completely extinct and obsolete in all Catholic countries.
The United Nations must stop recognizing the Vatican as an independent “secular and political state”. This Vatican Palace and its garden is not a country but a mansion for exclusive few Catholic priests. They must stop dictating the morals of the world since they are even more corrupt than secular people.
The Holy See or Vatican uses Latin to give lawyers the hefty price (and to deter them) to translate their lawsuits into Latin. Latin is the mask of the "infallible" pope -- Benedict XVI the coward and pathological LIAR guilty of the cover-up of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army.
Latin is a fantasy like medieval King Arthur. It is for the movies and fairy tales.
Latin is obsolete and non-existent (just like Shakespeare's old English, it is only for the theatres) it is NOT for real DAILY LIFE.
John Paul II was heartless and callous towards the hundreds of thousands victims sodomized by his John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army. See "Theology and John Paul II are heartless and together they made the immoral Fr. Marcial Maciel thrive" http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/05/theology-and-john-paul-ii-are-heartless.html
