lay devotions in latin>
#27
Speaking only for myself, I've never felt comfortable praying privately in Latin, even the Breviary. I am comfortable reading Latin, but it still feels like a pretension in personal prayer. It is perfectly natural in a public service like Mass or Benediction, but I prefer praying in my own language privately - that's also why I generally don't like "traditional" English. But if using Latin in your devotional life helps you, great. I confess to not understanding why someone would pray privately in Latin if they don't understand Latin well, but my opinion doesn't matter that much - that's a matter between them and a spiritual director.
