In case you haven’t seen it

Because, you know, you’ve been living under a rock these past few days or something.  There’s a new web site offering us the ability to pray the Breviarium Romanum without having to drop some serious change to do so (well over $200US the last I looked).  As excited as I am about this possibility, I really need to get crackin’ on my Latin if I am to make any good use of this site.  It should be noted that the folks running the site haven’t yet integrated the office of Matins, but even just starting with Lauds and Vespers would be great, let alone Compline and the mid-day hours.  Well done, good souls!

    I have iBreviary on my iPod touch, which has a Latin translation. I am using the Spanish, however, to prepare for this summer as well as improve my overall Spanish reading/pronunciation.

    Of course, the app requires an iPod touch or iPhone, but is only 99 cents itself.

      I actually just used iBreviary for Vespers the other night. It may seem trite, but it is very useful when you need it. I’d never thought of it as a teaching tool, but that’s an excellent idea. Just remember, Mexican Spanish and Spain Spanish are different, and not just in pronunciation. Kinda like the Queen’s English and American English.

    True about pronunciation, but iBreviary doesn’t read it for you.
