But the conscious and repetitive omission of the word "mass" from parishes worldwide is a product of the revolution to destroy the Church. That revolution is quite real, whether you want to admit it or not.

I have been to many parishes where the NO is said and I cannot think of one that omits the word "Mass".  What makes you think this is a world wide problem?
Jayne, I've been to NO mass in at least a dozen US states and also in Germany.  While I would not say using "Eucharist" for "the Mass" is universal, I have found - in my personal experience - that it is very widespread often occurs in parishes that are trying to cultivate a "community" atmosphere and where the sacrificial character of the Mass is nearly completely obscured (which is probably a majority of them).  I agree with you that this may often be done out of what are "good" motives by those who unthinkingly promote this usage, but I definitely agree with Vetus that this is a product of the destructive processes that have been at work in the Church.
