Latin term or phrase: Magnanimeter Crucem Sustine
it is a motto on a coat of arms
Sian Marston
Carry the cross generously
Explanation:
magnanimus = generous (magnanimeter is the adverb)
crux = cross (crucem is accusative singular)
sustinere = to carry (sustine is imperative singular)

Actually my native language is German, so I'm not sure whether this is proper English, however I've studied Latin passionately (even voluntarily participated in a project to translate the chronicle of my town's abbey from medieval Latin to German) and I believe I know enough English in order to bring the meaning of this coat of arms across.
