Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Latin returns to the Sioux Falls cathedral

Here's a good reason for it:

He also thinks a Mass in Latin will serve as a unifying element at the Cathedral, where an order of nuns speaks Spanish, a Sudanese community sometimes speaks Arabic and Asian parishioners also gather."A Catholic used to be able to hear the same Mass anywhere in the world he would travel," Schreurs says. "(Latin) words' meanings won't change, as English words have different meanings in different areas, and we are constantly adding slang to the English language."
