Boondock Saints quotes

While the wicked stand confounded,call me with thy saints surrounded
Agus na damnaithe fágtha gan focal
Glaoigh ormsa i measc na naomh

Aequitas – Veritas (is Latin)
Cóir – Fírinne
Justice – Truth

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti (is Latin)
In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
In ainm an Athar, agus an Mhic, agus an Spioraid Naomh

Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of god
Ní dhoirtfear fuil neamhchiontach choíche. Ach sruthóidh fuil na n-olc mar abhainn. Leathfaidh an triúr a n-eiteoga dubhaithe agus beidh siad ina chasúr buailte Dé.

And shepherds we shall be,
for thee my lord for thee.
Power hath decended forth from thy hand
so our feet may swiftly carry out thy command.
And we shall flow a river forth to thee
and teeming with souls shall it ever be.

Agus beimid inár n-aoirí
ar do shonsa, a Thiarna, ar do shonsa,
tá cumhacht tagtha anuas ó do lámh
ionas go gcomhlíonadh ár gcosa do thoil go tapaidh.
Sruthóimid ar aghaidh mar abhainn chugat
Agus plódaithe le hanamacha a bheidh sí go deo.

When I raise my flashing sword, and my hand takes hold in judgement, I will take vengance upon my enemies and I shall repay those who have hazed me. Oh Lord, raise me to thy right hand and count me among thy saints.
Nuair a bheirim thuas mo chlaíomh lonrach agus nuair a ghearann mo lámh an breithiúnas gheobhaidh mé díoltas ar mo naimhde agus aisíocfaidh mé astu a chránn mé. A Thiarna, ardaigh mé go dti do lámh dheisagus cuir mé in áireamh na Naomh.

    “Deuteronomy 32-41: If I shall whet my sword as the lightning, and my hand take hold on judgment: I will render vengeance to my enemies, and repay them that hate me.”

    I got this little quote from the Catholic Encyclopedia online at ….. i’m surprised there aren’t any more quotes from this passage… It’s pretty mad with all the smiting and vengence in the thing…. Brilliant stuff! Keep up the good work!

    Someone forgot to translate the second part of Il Duce’s prayer:

    Whosoever shed last blood.
    By man shall his blood be shed.
    For immunity of god make he the man.
    Destroy all that which is evil.
    So that which is good may flourish.
    And I shall count thee amoung my favoured sheep.
    And you shall have the protection of all the angels in heaven.

    The phonetic pronouncation for the Latin “Aequitas” is fairly simple: “a-quee-toss.” “Veritas” is a little more difficult, as the Romans pronounced their “V” as Americans would a “W.” Therefore, “Veritas” is “wear-e-toss.” Hope this helps.

    Aequitas only means justice within the ranks, or EQUALITY. If you want justice as in someone coming to justice you would use the word iustius.

    I keep finding different translations in Irish Gaelic on different translation sitesfor these words/phrases. How do I know which is true? I know there are regional dialects but not sure that would change the words perhaps only the order of the words right? Thank you!
