Silentium

Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - sign "silentium" at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel

A sign asking visitors to be silent; at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel in the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis.

  1. Isn't tacit a better Latin word for that?

  2. Dunno. You're asking the wrong person. But I noticed that the sign was gone when I want to Mass today.

  3. That's not the usual sign, which is in English. Looks like something was taped over the original. It would be a good permanent change! (And yes, Tacit would be better Latin, but Silentium is probably more understandable to most visitors.)
