Latin LOLCat: Blessed

Here is today's Latin LOLCat. Note that the Latin rhymes: homo - domo. The Latin word beatus which you see here gives us the English word "beatitudes," a term used to refer to the famous sermon with the refrain "blessed are you" from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke; you can read more about that at Wikipedia. If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check out the Bestiaria Latina blog.

Beatus ille homo qui vivit sua domo.

Blessed is he who lives in his own home.
