Eamus Catuli

I have a fondness for Latin mottoes and aphorisms. I've always especially liked Nolite illegitimi contrere vos (the unofficial motto of my seminary alma mater when I ws a student there), though I hold in special regard that of the Boston Latin School: Sumus primus.

But Eamus Catuli is my new favorite. I won't tell you why just yet. We'll wait to see whether anyone can figure it out.

And one pertinent for today's Episcopal Church: Boni pastoris est tondere pecus, non deglubere.

Eamus Catuli!

Read about it and see the photos at

And yes, there is also "Annus Catuli", or "Year of the Cubs".

I have mentioned it before on my blog, but True Cubs Fans embrace the disappointment and wrap it around themselves with an effervescent "wait 'till next year!" attitude that does not die.

However, "next year" appears to be "this year" so far!

Eamus Catuli!
