Enough with Vatican II hoopla already. Back to Latin....


Apparently in the sacristy of a certain nearby Cathedral.  Ironic cleanliness rituals!  I love it!

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.

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!
