If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you. -- Oscar Wilde
For those who are deficient in Latin (such as myself), here is the translation: http://translate.google.com/#auto/en/Da%20Domine%20Virtutem%20manibus%20meis%20ad%20abstergendam%20omnem%20maculam%20ut%20sine%20pollutione%20mentis%20et%20corporis%20valeam%20tibi%20servire.
Since that link didn't work well, here is the translation:Oh Lord grant me the power to my hands, being cleansed from all stain, so that I may be able to serve Thee in purity of mind and body.
didn't paste well, I should have said. it worked perfectly!
You saw my latest? Also from a cathedral: http://bit.ly/SVjrZK
Virtus-is is better translated as virtue in this text.Coming from the same rooth that vir-viris (man, male), derives the second meaning: power.But in this latin prayer means virtue.Yeap, catholic and nerd!!And, you can tell, English is not my language, sorry!
