Hitting the Third Declension Wall!

I was doing good until I hit chapter 7 and the Third Declension Nouns.
Just look at these wack declensions:
homō
hominis
hominī
hominem
homine
hominēs
hominum
hominibus
hominēs
hominibus
Now I ask you, what is the magical mystery secret to mastering Third Declension nouns? Or is this one of those things I have to memorize?

MULTAS GRATIAS

accents in MOUSA

Why is the circumflex accent used in the nom pl of the first declension feminine noun MOUSA (Muse), e.g.,
Mousai with circumflex over the penultimate dipthong -ou, and then the acute accent is used in the dat pl, e.g., Mousais with acute over the penultimate dipthong? Does -ai count as short, but -ais count as long?

Latin - English Interlinear or Parallel Bible

Does anyone know if such a thing exists ? ?

cum omnes virtutes currant in stadio , lola perseverantia accipit bravium

non quaruntur in christianis intia sed finis



Any ideas ?? ? ?
The second one is something like "there is no ?? in Christianity ?? but the end".

The first one might be something like "With every virtue we run into persevereance and take suffering ? ?" What are stadio, bravium, and lola ? ? ?

Translation help please.

In profundis tenebrarum
Aurei cruentique solis occasus.
Dominus fletum e Styge hausit,
Solus beryllus continet lucentes illas lacrimas,

Tamen in eius profundis
Abyssus abyssum invocat.

Latin quote of the day

The company I work for announced layoffs in our dept last week, and we lost three people who were longtime employees with lots of experience and knowledge. I thought this quote was appropriate:

Latin or Greek? Hmm...

I have a simple question, which language do you think is harder, Latin or Greek? I’m sure this has been asked before so please forgive me if so.

I ask because I couldn’t restrain myself anymore the other day and I opened up A Greek Primer and read the first chapter. First there was the beginner’s hurdle: the alphabet. I didn’t have too much trouble with that because I have had past experience, and then ...
