The Use of Latin in Church Documents Is Not an Exercise in Preciosity
No more “propositiones”. No more “relationes”. No more anything. Latin will not be around, not even to ensure the precision of formulas and the exactness of final deliberations (and, presumably, the final report), unlike in any other of the previous assemblies of the Synod of Bishops.
In a break with tradition, Pope Francis has decreed that the deliberations at the synod on the family are to be carried out in Italian rather than Latin.
Cardinal Péter Erdő of Hungary made the announcement during this morning opening session of the family synod at the Vatican, saying that Italian would be the “working language of the synod” at the behest of the pontiff. [Source]
