Memento, homo...

Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris.

The Latin formula is the same in the Ordinary and the Extraordinary Form.

Most useful in my urban tri-lingual parish! The Latin is so pastoral. So unifying! So divine!

There are at least a dozen languages represented in the parish with the vast majority not understanding English at all.
