Enter your Latin sentences below, and click the "Analyze" button, and you will see above each word its part of speech, tense, gender, mood, etc. Click on each word for its definition. Keyboard shortcuts: usually, "mod" = "alt" on PC and "ctrl" on Mac. Note: This analyzer returns multiple possibilities for some words because they have multiple inflections depending on the context. It is therefore your homework to choose the correct one from each drop-down menu before you print it out for later study!
Q. 566. Why does the Church use the Latin language instead of the national language of its children? A. The Church uses the Latin language instead of the national language of its children:
To avoid the danger of changing any part of its teaching in using different languages;
That all its rulers may be perfectly united and understood in their communications;
To show that the Church is not an institute of any particular nation, but the guide of all nations.
