On the relevance of Latin in the Liturgy: a Jewish perspective

An interesting article in one of Canada's national newspapers, The National Post includes the article, Latin's second coming.

This article is of particular interest as it details one of this paper's writers, a Jewish woman, invitation to a Mass in the Latin language.

She relates this to her own background in the synagogue and the use of the Hebrew language for prayer and makes a defense of the use of languages like Latin or Hebrew in liturgical worship, and its potency as well as liturgical value.

Pay attention in particular to the last three paragraphs on page one.
