There's 2 words in there that I can't make out:


certamen - ?
consunavi - ?

The rest is:

bonum - good
certavi - I have fought
cursum - running
et - and
fidem - trust
servavi - I have saved

I hope that helps you a little bit at least.

"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."

It should read "Bonum certamen certavi cursum consummavi fidem servavi."

Extra points to whomever can work out whose words they are.

Belle you are a goddess!!
extra points for sure! this was extra credit for my final theology class--its kinda ironic if you think about it...

THANK YOU!

Edit: i didnt make it clear... Paul (Saul) said this... you know the guy who wrote the letters... hrmm, just before he was crucified... this cant bode well... esp since im in danger of failing theology... <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

You're welcome, and flattery will get you everywhere.

I don't know if you should get the extra points, what with being a theology student and all...

It's from the second of Paul's letters to Timothy. A lot of colleges use a derivation as their motto - "Servo fidem" - "I keep the faith."
