Why Latin in the Liturgy?

Here is what the old statesman Lloyd George had to say back in the day:

"There is no Church," says Lloyd George, "that has made a surer and deeper search into human nature.  Roman Catholics conduct their worship in the language of worship.  Their Church utilizes every means of taking people beyond everyday interests; the language of commerce and of everyday occupation is left outside, and the people are taught the language of worship.  That shows a shrewd, deep insight into the human mind."

--The Mass by Fr. Joseph Dunney.
