Go with you

I was just thinking about the grace one recieves when sick and at risk of dying, Viaticum.

"Via" means "way". Today we use it to mean "by way of", but it's plain, literal meaning is "way".

"Tecum" is a conjunction of "cum" and "te", meaning "with you".

"Via Te Cum" means, basically, "go on the way with you".

Latin is such a nice language, depsite being "dead". :)
