Why Study Latin?

Here is a quote from Tertullian:

Caro salutis est cardo.

The flesh is the turning point of salvation.

He is referring to the miracle of the incarnation, where the Word became flesh. However, even if the meaning is plain enough in English, a great deal is lost in translation. The original is magnificent. It's just another reason why you should study Latin.
