Quoth the prophet
Merry Christmas everyone in Blog-O-Land! I am prepping for church. I like to have a few minutes to take my mind off food and Pennario and everything else that I constantly think about, because I was a schlep years ago in Latin class and these are the wages of that.
Thrilling lines today.
"Lux fulgebit hodie super nos: quia natus est nobis Dominus: et vocabitur Admirabilis, Deus, Princeps pacis, Pater futuri saeculi: cujus regni non erit finis."
"A light shall shine upon us this day: for the Lord is born to us: and He shall be called Wonderful, God, the Prince of Peace, the Father of the world to come, of whose reign there shall be no end." I love those words "Admirabilis" and "Princeps pacis." That is from the ancient Prophet Isaiah.
Also from Isaiah: "Puer natus est nobis, et filius datus est nobis: cujus umperium super humerum ejus: et vocabitur nomen ejus, magni consilii Angelus."
"A Child is born to us, and a Son is given to us, whose government is upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called, the Angel of great counsel."
Everything is more exciting in Latin.
You have to wonder what in the world they thought Isaiah was talking about! That is a picture of the Prophet Isaiah up above. I took it off someone else's Web log so I cannot vouch for its authenticity. But come on, what else would the Prophet Isaiah look like?
Anyway I am studying up on this before deciding what fattening foods I can eat today. Perhaps I will make an impressive dessert. Perhaps another batch of cookies.
Hmmmm.. this explains the pensive look on the Prophet Isaiah's face.
