After my recent piece about grammatical howlers in Collects and other texts issued by the CDW, it has occurred to me that Spot The Latin Howler would be a very acceptable addition to the sections of our newspapers which contain crosswords, chess puzzles, sudokus, etc. etc.. (The Times, incidentally, has a Latin crossword ... I'm sure this sort of delight is also commonplace in North America.)
For those who like this type of puzzle, I think I will offer occasional puzzles with the Spot The Latin Howler format, drawing upon the rich treasure of illiteracies contained in CDW decrees.
So here is the Collect authorised a few years ago for our Lady of Guadalupe. Spot the howler!
Deus, Pater misericordiarum, qui sub sanctissimae Matris Filii tui singulari patrocinio plebem tuam constituisti, tribue cunctis, qui beatam Virginem Guadalupensem invocant, ut, alacri fide, populorum progressionem in viis iustitiae quaereant et pacis.
Remember: it's grammatical howlers you're after, so the 'answer' is not "I object to any allusion to a left-wing encyclical of S Paul VI".
