Etymology

From [[w:Template:lang:la language|Template:lang:la]][[Category:ca:Template:lang:la derivations]] recitare, to recite.

Verb

resar (first person singular present indicative reso, past participle resat)

  1. to pray
  2. to officiate in a religious service

Conjugation

Usage notes

In its original sense, resar meant to read an oration: hence a missa resada is a mass which is read rather than sung ("low mass"). It has come to be used in the sense of to pray, especially when referring to non-Christian religions, in preference to the verb pregar, which has taken on a more mundane sense.
