HIC EST REX IUDAEORUM

Luke 23:38 "And there was also a superscription written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS." – Douay-Rheims Bible

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the un-bloody re-presentation of the Crucifixion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The languages used in the Traditional Latin Mass include Greek, and Hebrew. The Greek: Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison, the Hebrew: Amen, Alleluia, Hosanna, Sabaoth (as well as various texts of Sacred Scripture used throughout the Mass) are the same languages written on the titulus witnessed by those at the foot of the cross. Today, those who say, and those who hear the Pian (Saint Pius V) Mass face Our Lord, adoring Him, knowing that we are redeemed by His Passion and Death.

I. and other priests and laity, should be allowed to worship Almighty God in the languages of our ancient forebearers of faith.

Apocalypse 5:12 -- Latin Vulgate / Douay-Rheims
dignus est agnus qui occisus est accipere virtutem et divinitatem et sapientiam et fortitudinem et honorem et gloriam et benedictionem
the Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power, and divinity, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and benediction

I'm sure you already know this, but Quo Primum already gives you that perpetual right.

Keep fighting the good fight, Pater.

My "middle-of-the-road-Catholic" website, http://www.soli-deo.net has a link to the Quo Primum text via the Latin Prayers page.
