Phrases That Should Be Added To The Mass
To The Mass of Pope Caveman I, that is

Cum Catapultae Proscriptae Erunt Tum Soli Fuerint Catapultas Habebunt
When Catapults Are Outlawed Only Outlaws Will Have Catapults

Per Molestias Eruditio
True Education Through Physical Abuse

Australem Gratia Dei
Southern By The Grace of God

Flagellatas Perseverante Donec Perbeatus Meliore
The Beatings Will Continue Until Moral Improves

Elvisuis Est Rex Regenium, Infantia!
Elvis Is The King, Baby!

Age. Fac ut gaudeam
Go ahead. Make my day

Abeo, abeo, abeo, actum est, comites!
Ah-bee, ah-bee, ah-bee, that's all, folks!


...and firmly affixed to the Fred Flintstone style Pope-Mobile;

Sic Hoc Adfixum In Obice Legere Potes, Et Liberaliter Educatus Et Nimis Propinquus Ades
If You Can Read This Bumper Sticker, You Are Both Very Well Educated And Much Too Close

anyone have any more?

are you a former seminarian? Lots of Latin classes led to this addiction you have to translation. I love the last one.

Forgive me for being a Latin teacher, but I mean this with as much Christian charity as this sinner can offer:

"Cum catapultae proscriptae erunt" I would probably change to the future perfect, "fuerint"

"Australem Gratiam Dei" maybe..."Gratia" with the ablative.

Good stuff though, I must say!

Tom,
A former seminarian... ME!!?? Not at all. I'm just a guy with a computer and WAY too much time on his hands.

Actually, what I do is have a searchable Douay-Rheims Bible on one screen, and a seachable Vulgate Bible on another. I type in an English word or phrase on the DR, then get that particular passage and find it on the Vulgate.

From there I have a fairly good feeling that I've done it correct... and of course, I await the kindness of strangers like MAGISTER to fine tune my grammatical errors.

Magister,
Errors corrected. Thanks!

Looks like you're a fan of "Latin for All Occasions" too. :)
