Latin

Quantus - how great, so great as, such as

Quando - when, since.

To illustrate this, here is part of a medieval Latin poem, Dies Irae, which, I believe, is used in the Catholic liturgy, in the Roman Catholic Requiem Mass.

Quantus tremor est futurus,
Quando iudex est venturus
Cuncta stricte discussurus!

How great a tremor is to be,
when the judge is to come
briskly shattering every grave.

I like listening to it, actually -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fMHms5Cvsw

I didn't notice actually :]

Ira - wrath, Latin

As in the name of the medieval poem I mentioned earlier on, Dies Irae - The Day of Wrath - the poem is a powerful description of Judgement Day and, as I understand it, a prayer to Jesus for mercy. Perhaps someone better versed in Latin could confirm. Magister? :]

морозить, to freeze, Russian - I imagine that the perfective is заморозить, but I'm not sure.

Sorry, can't help you. I'm well-versed in pagan Latin, not Christian Latin :]

But I did once own a CD by an Italian band called Dies Irae. All the lyrics were in Latin. :]
