Happy New Year!

Liturgical year, that is: Sunday, December 3rd was Advent I. And since last week I’ve been reading the daily Lectionary readings as listed in the back of the Book of Common Prayer. And to make sure I keep my declensions straight, I’ve been reading each Psalm first in Latin and then flipping back to the translation in English and, only somewhat surprisingly, more often than not, getting the gist of it right. If I get really good, I may download a copy of the Vulgate and try doing all four readings that way. Let’s see how long this lasts.
