I think it's great that you studied and enjoy Latin. Literature is NOT all Latin has to offer.

It's been said that when you pray, pray in Latin. To quote: When you pray in Latin, you are praying in union with the rest of the Church in the same universal language the Roman Church has prayed for practically her entire existence.

I'm Catholic. I go to mass every Sunday and aim to go 2 times a week minimum. I encourage you if you are able to attend mass in Latin if you can. You'll feel refreshed.

My original point, which may have not been made as eloquently as I would have like, was that playing Navy is unnecessarily tedious where we have to "put what we have learned all year to get ready for an offense we likely see only once a year", which was not unlike my educational experience with Latin.
