Since J.R.R. Tolkien was catholic and created the Elvish language for the lord of the rings, I thought i might post this for interest. It is, in order, the Our Father, The Hail Mary, and the Glory Be in tokiens Elvish Laguage, translated by Tolkien himself.
    • *Átaremma *
    Átaremma i ëa han ëa ∙

    na aire esselya ∙

    na care indómelya

    cemende tambe Erumande :

    ámen anta síra ilaurëa massamma ∙

    ar ámen apsene úcaremmar

    sív’ emme apsenet tien i úcarer emmen.

    Álame tulya úsahtíenna

Thanks! My teenage daughter will love this! 😃

Where did you find these?
 
I was looking up elvish on the net and found a website about it. It had a .pdf file that showed Dr. Tolkiens translations (he had a couple for each one) I than transfered it into word. I’ll find the site and post the url…
 
and here it is

Note: the prayers are in Quenya (kind of an elvish latin).
 
Cool–now all I have to do is figure out what the vowel diacritical markings mean, and whether any of the consonants change their pronunciations.

Now: Klingon, anyone?

I found a link; I’ll post it later. Meanwhile, enjoy the Our Father in Manx:
Ayr ain t’ayns niau, casherick dy row dt’ennym;
dy jig dty reeriaght; dt’aigney dy row jeant er y thalloo myr t’eh ayns niau.
Cur dooin nyn arran jiu as gagh laa.
As leih dooin nyn loghtyn, myr ta shinyn leih dauesyn ta jannoo loghtyn nyn oi.
As ny leeid shin ayns miolagh, agh livrey shin veih olk.
Tee hee!

And here is the Lords Prayer in Welsh 😃

Ein Tad, yr hwn wyt yn y nefoedd,
sancteiddier dy enw;
deled dy deyrnas;
gwneler dy ewyllys;
megis yn y nef, felly ar y ddaear hefyd.
Dyro i ni heddiw ein bara beunyddiol.
A maddau i ni ein dyledion,
fel y maddeuwn ninnau i’n dyledwyr.
Ac nac arwain ni i brofedigaeth;
eithr gwared ni rhag drwg.

MAWGLAN (DOXOLOGY):

Canys eiddot ti yw’r deyrnas,
a’r gallu, a’r gogoniant,
yn oes oesoedd. Amen.

Yours in the Spirit

Pious.

What’s Manx?
It’s the language originating from the Isle of Man.

I gave up on trying to learn Manx and Welsh a couple of years ago. Pronunciation, to me, was nothing like trying to learn Irish or Scots Gaelic. 😦

Well its good that you at least got (or are getting) Irish and Scots Gaelic under your belt. I have a book on Scots Gaelic, however it is sitting on the bottom shelf of my bookcase (with most of my other foreign language books - mainly German, but with one French book grammar book, and a few latin books (usually, they are by my comp at the moment).)

Maybe we should form a group. We can post & improve our Celtic.
