More conservatism among the young

In my school a group of boys have spontaneously formed a Latin Compline group. This is just one more piece of evidence of the atmosphere of disobedience that pervades young Catholics and seminarians (see post below 'Faith magazine'). I think we can all see the danger: young men, gathering gathering to say the official liturgy of the Church, in a sacred language, before they go to bed.

I'll be leaving in a minute to join them:

VISITA, quaesumus, Domine, habitationem istam, et omnes insidias inimici ab ea longe repelle: Angeli tui sancti habitent in ea, qui nos in pace custodiant; et benedictio tua sit super nos semper. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

VISIT, we beg Thee, O Lord, this dwelling, and drive from it all the snares of the enemy; let Thy holy Angels dwell herein to keep us in peace; and let Thy blessing be always upon us. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Update: they sang beautifully & not a bean-bag in sight!
