Concordia cum Veritate

An ounce of criticism is worth more than a pound of praise

An ounce of criticism is worth more than a pound of praise--at least that's what my latest readers think! Lol. It's all good.

Well answering the healthy criticism of the comments in my last post, it looks like I did use the nominative "veritas" when I should have used the ablative "veritate" for "cum." As far as "concordia" is concerned it appears as though the meaning harmony is correct... an aetheist told me in first year it meant beauty. Never trust an aetheist in matters of faith, morals or Latin!

My proposed solution to the above problem: let's make Latin a living language again, and see how concordia as a word evolves and expands its definition to mean "beauty." Let us be inclusive in the language of Latin because the Latin is inclusive. Let us venture into dialogue with people who do not know the Latin. For the Latin understands and forgives. "The Latin is my shepherd. The Latin is my life and my salvation." This is something any great saint could have said in centuries past like St. Jerome (translator of the Latin Vulgate) or St. Thomas Aquinas, and perhaps this is something even from the lips of schismatics like His Excellency Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. Clearly Martin Luther and Henry VIII did not know the Latin as they should have--or Roman Catholics around Vatican II. This used to be a comment but it's so long I turned it into a post.

And onto other things. I'm attending a wedding this weekend in Goderich. My friends Kris Hiuser and Erin Hoffemeyer are getting married! Congratulations to them! I pray some day it may become a sacrament for them:-) Weddings are such wonderful things. I can't wait to have my own! I know it'll come when it's time, but I still can't wait! Char's going to a wedding this weekend too in Norfolk, VA. Only a week till I get to see her! and her family! 10 days with the family, it'll be grand. Whoever reads this please pray for my safe trip there and back again.

Pax vobiscum nunc, et semper, et in seculae seculorum

  • The Latin concepts of beauty and harmony were very similar because art and architecture were closely associated with math, perfect proportion and structure.

    That's why your Atheist friend told you it meant beauty.

    Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
    Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
    Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
    Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
