Thank you for sharing your linguistic history, Bernadette. I am an avid learner and lover of various languages myself.

Have you by chance heard of Cardinal Mezzofanti? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giuseppe_Caspar_Mezzofanti

No, I've never heard of him. My great-grandma spoke eight, and my grandma was proficient in at least 3, as was my aunt and as is my sister, so it seems to run in the family.  :P
St. Therese, pray for me. You who knew such dryness and spiritual anguish, take pity on me.
