Latin question

  • Are there any other words in Latin for "incapable" other than "incapace?" Could incapace be used in the context of a statement like "Heretics are incapable of receiving Communion" or would it not work since you are saying they aren't physically able to take it rather than them being unworthy?

    Is that a Latin word - incapace? Didn't find anything.
    I'd go for non valere - where valere means being capable of something or being able to do something, and non negates that.

  • Invalidus - incapable. Indignus - unworthy. Incapace is Italian.

    Remember, Domine non sum dignus. Lord, I am not worthy.
