“The Latin Mass”

Strange words for a bumper sticker, no? In the course of my employment, I noticed an RV with these strange words on it, yesterday near Knoxville, TN.

I later Googled the phrase and, sure enough, there are indeed bumper stickers like this being bought and sold. Looks to be a Roman Catholic enterprise.

“Do they speak in Latin to one other,” I asked myself. I also wondered if they would prefer their sermons in Latin, too…

The following text came to mind though it applies to another matter – namely, to tongues: 1 Corinthians 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him.

Thank God for those who long ago helped to end the practice of scripture readings and “masses” in Latin. The price they paid was quite high.

    Could it be another form of gnosticism? The desire to have a secret vocabulary and language to separate some from others.
