Correcting the Blog’s Title and The Need to Learn Latin

I’ve added Ex Magno Silentio as a subtitle to the blog because of two helpful comments I received.  Like many Catholics who came of age as the Vatican II changes were being implemented, the study of Latin was scrapped just about everywhere, in and out of the Church.  As I’ve grown older, I have come to understand and regret the loss of Catholics to the connection with the history and traditions of the Church as Latin was obscured and nearly buried, but also the loss of connection to Roman history, which is the foundation of Western Civilization.  Even sixty years ago, many people had studied Latin and read classical authors such as Virgil in Latin, but which I and future generations, with rare exceptions, will never be able to do.

So my computer-translated title is probably wrong and so I have added what is likely to be a more correct translation.  Yet, most computer translation programs keep giving me the original form I used.  However, people study, speak and read languages, and computer programs do not.  So, I will try to make the time and give the effort to learn Latin, even if it’s only result is that I get this title correct!
