Mass in Latin?

Originally the liturgy was in Hebrew but it quickly became Greek. But within a couple centuries the Western Catholic Church made Latin the official language ever since and the Eastern Churches continued to use Greek and other languages. But still today the traditional Latin rite uses words from Hebrew and Greek as well in the liturgy. 

Latin has been around for so long that it has become a monument of the faith. Sanctified by centuries of use within the Church. Demons hate it because of this.

I've also heard that a dead language is precise, adding to Satan's hatred of it.

Surviving languages often have new definitions attached as time goes on. If I am happy you can say I am gay, but I am not a homosexual. The second definition is the one in primary use.

That's not to say you'd ere in calling a happy straight person gay, but it'd seem queer if you did. (See what I did there?)

Alleluia is the Greek variant of Hallelujah, meaning Praise Yah (the shortened form of Yahweh). Someday praise might get a negative secondary definition that is used primarily, hence it adds creeedence to the power of ancient language.
