His recently-completed translation of the Tabula Libri Ethicorum (Aquinas Institute, forthcoming) is the first in any language of the Angelic Doctor’s concordance of the Nicomachean Ethics. He also works to prepare and authenticate sacred relics. His approach to living Latin is informed by his mentor Fr Reginaldus Foster, OCD.

Intro

Salve! Nomen mihi est Marcus. This is my real and roman name. From the time I was immersed in Latin for a whole year, at Accademia Vivarium Novum, IT, I have had a special love for the language of Cicero. It did much for my mind and education. Speaking it in both a serious and light way and reading extensively, enabled me to dialogue with a plethora of great minds and access the invaluable intellectual and liturgical riches of the Catholic Church. Besides, it helped me with Mathematics, Writing, and learning many other languages later. I can speak English, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian but Latin is still the language that was most edifying to me. When studying the Liberals Arts at Thomas Aquinas College, CA, for instance, I was able to read the original text of many great works, like the Vulgate and the Confessions by Saint Augustine. If you would like to really learn Latin by speaking and reap the benefits I reaped, please let me know. Vale!
