Why the Mass in Latin?
#36
St. Augustine whored himself out for a large portion of his life, and was a heretical Manichaen after that.  Certainly you don't accept him as a saint who was a bad example for most of his life while rejecting St. Photios for the same thing?  It doesn't matter how they lived their lives, if they reconciled with God and the Church and died in a state of grace, they are saints.

What is this absolute simplicity doctrine?  I've heard rumors about it but don't know much.  Did the Lateran council define it after Palamas' death?  If so, certainly you can't accuse him of heresy for something that wasn't defined as such during his time.  I've never really understood this penchant of Latins for retroactive anathematization.

The Greek fathers of Florence didn't understand the Latin they were being given.  In Greek, the filioque means the Holy Spirit is proceeding from two sources.  Further, they would have signed anything because they were under Byzantine imperial pressure to gain military help from the West against the Islamic onslaught.  You really have a way of picking and choosing what facts you want to make an argument with.  You're kind of a cafeteria historian.

Ultimately, though, the end remains the same.  We are fully Catholic as we are, therefore nothing you can give us can make us more Catholic than we already are.  Any and all Latinizations are completely unnecessary, unhelpful and, most importantly, uncharitable.
