Ecumenical group presents Latin audio New Testament to Pope

Catholic World News - January 16, 2012

An ecumenical association that offers recordings of the New Testament in over 600 languages presented its Latin recording of the New Testament to Pope Benedict during his January 11 general audience.

When Father Peter Stravinskas approached Faith Comes by Hearing to suggest that the association offer a recording in Latin, the initial response was that Latin is a dead language. Father Stravinskas replied that Latin is the living language of 1.2 billion Catholic, prompting a collaboration that led to the recording.
