Here is today's #latinlolcat - Qui legit, intellegat - Let the one who reads understand

The Latin has a play on words - legit/intellegat - which is hard to capture - the Latin word for understand, intellegere - as in English intelligent - is somehow connected with gathering and reading, inter+legere: http://athirdway.com/glossa/?s=intellego

The words are from Matthew 24... but no such nice play on words in the Greek: ὁ ἀναγινώσκων νοείτω (nor in King James: whoso readeth, let him understand)
