Latin is only official in the Vatican. It's a dead language and has been that way for many centuries....

When Joseph Ratzinger announced his resignation, he first did it in latin, so no journalist but one (Giovanna Chirri from ANSA, italian news agency) understood what Benedict XVI was saying.

Here her story of what happened. (in Italian)

Se il drago rifiuta di combattere,
forse è solo pigro.
Ma se ignora la zanzara,
allora è davvero addormentato.
