 the latin liturgy makes use of a legitimately latin phrase.  that phrase was
 taken into a song.  those are the facts.  There is nothing at all un-latin
 about the phrase "kyrie eleison" any more than there is anything un-english
 about the word "kindergarten" (a german loan word!)

	The question is whether a petitioner to Tiberias (or Sejanus!) would 
have used the phrase to him, when asking for mercy for himself of his family. 
I expect not.
