Is the language of the church latin?

  • history -

    The language of the Catholic Church has traditionally been Latin. However, in the last 30 years or so, most masses are conducted in the local languages -- at least in the U.S.

    Remember, though, that the Bible was originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek.
