Latin.png Latin text

Homo quidam fecit cenam magnam,
et misit servum suum hora cenae
dicere invitatis ut venirent
quia parata sunt

omnibus firmiter credentibus
cibaria vite conferencia
angelica celicaque gaudia

venite, comedite panem meum,
et bibite vinum quod miscui vobis.
Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.
