Exhortation: Knowing and using Latin

At the blog of Fr. Zuhlsdorf (aka, Fr. Z), we are getting some ongoing discussion about translation and how it applies to the exhortation: Sacramentum Caritatis. This is interesting, in general, on the issue of Latin translations, even aside from the exhortation.

Keep in mind that Fr. Z's website is being inundated with hits - to the point that it has taken the server down. To prevent his hosting service from shutting him down completely, Father has been putting up a one-pager asking people to visit in non-peak hours. I have had no problem reading his site at 4:30 or 5:00am, but can't get in during regular working hours. He is continuing to work on a more permanent solution to fix the problem caused by so many interested people visiting his site.

All I can say, is just keep trying at different times. Perhaps he will continue to put one or two of his last posts up on that one pager as I saw this morning.
