Hear Fr. Foster on Vatican Radio: The Latin Lover

They call him the Pope's Latinist - I've collected a few articles and photos to help you understand this colorful man.

Please note: I am not Fr. Foster, and I am not in contact with him. To reach him, look at the last four (summer class) links for his address and write him yourself.

Reggie Foster's Caesar SongSing Along
Ecce Caesar nunc triumphat qui subegit Galliam,
Civiumque multitudo celebrat victoriam.

Gaius Iulius Caesar noster, imperator, pontifex,
Primum praetor, deinde consul, nunc dictator, moxque rex.

En victores procedentes, laeti floribus novis,
Magna praeda sunt potiti et captivis plurimis.

Exsultantes magna voce Io triumphe! concinunt,
Dum auratum ante currum victa oppida ferunt.

Legiones viam sacram totam complent strepitu,
Capitolinumquc collem scandit Caesar in curru.

O sol pulcher, o laudande! Caesarem recepimus,
Et corona triumphali honoratum vidimus.

Patre Reginald Foster (experto de Latino in Vatican)
