Example: "Will you be at 9 o' clock Eucharist tomorrow?"   

Exactly. In the end, it's just as simple as that.

Only a completely misguided or ignorant person would venture to ascribe "good intentions" to those people behind the revolutionary programme called "Novus Ordo." Things like these have been happening for decades, eroding the faith of Catholics worldwide step by step.

The Gospel reading at Mass today was the one where Jesus calms the storm.  In his homily, the priest talked about its various metaphorical meanings.  One of these is that Peter's boat is a symbol of the Church.  The apostles one the boat look at the storm and the waves coming over the boat and say, "Lord, save us, we perish!"  Jesus answered them,"Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith?"  And He commanded the waves and the sea to be still.

We do not need to be fearful.  Leaving out the word "the" is not a plot to destroy the Church and even if it were it would not succeed.  God will save us from the storm assaulting the Church just as surely as he calmed the storm in today's Gospel.  Have faith.
