Mass in Latin?
#2
Off the top of my head, it has to do with the standardization of the Mass after the Council of Trent, when the Roman Rite was established as the standard rite to be celebrated in the Church. And since the Roman rite is traditionally in Latin, as well as Latin being the official ecclesiastical language, that is why its usage is seen as the norm.
There are various other rites since the dawn of Christianity that use different languages, such as the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom being presented in the common vernacular of the region as you find in Eastern Catholicism and Orthodoxy.
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
