  Latin Church
The Latin Church is simply that vast portion of the Catholic body which obeys the Latin patriarch, which submits to the pope, not only in papal, but also in patriarchal matters.

The Church is convinced it is not free to change this practice, which is traced back to Jesus' choice of apostles, and to the practice of the apostles and their successors, and has declared the matter closed for discussion, the latest declaration being John Paul II's Ordinatio Sacerdotalis in 1994.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Church Latin
In the present instance these words are taken to mean the Latin we find in the official textbooks of the Church (the Bible and the Liturgy), as well as in the works of those Christian writers of the West who have undertaken to expound or defend Christian beliefs.
Hardly had it been formed when church Latin had to undergo the shock of the invasion of the barbarians and the fall of the Empire of the West; it was a shock that gave the death-blow to literary Latin as well as to the Latin of everyday speech on which church Latin was waxing strong.
Until recently, Latin had retained its place in the Liturgy, as it was seen to point out and watch over, in the very bosom of the Church, that unity of belief in all places and throughout all times which is her birthright.

 Being church in Latin America today
Latin America has more than 500 years of dependency and exploitation behind it: the only thing that changed was the name or country of the exploiters as the method of exploitation was more finely tuned.

 European Missionaries and the Latin Church in India
The Latin Christian communities emerged from the 16th century onwards, initially along the coastal region, in and around the Portuguese trade centers and forts and in the Portuguese enclaves.
The autonomy and the Indianness of the Latin Church in India were necessarily compromised first by the fact that the Padroado Christianity was built up with the protection of Portugal, the colonial power, and secondly by the fact that the Christians particularly in Portuguese enclaves, lived a privileged life.
The Portuguese priests were expelled from the city by the British governor, Charles Boone, and the existing four churches of Bombay were entrusted to the vicar apostolic and the five Carmelite missionaries who arrived soon after on the scene.

 LONDON BACH SOCIETY - Bach Music Database (Latin Church Music Introduction)
Luther certainly practiced that belief for he was a fine singer, lutenist and flautist and his family gathered together daily to sing motets.
Bach was well qualified to do this as his own Library was stocked with the writings of Martin Luther and the composer clearly saw his provision of a 'well-regulated church music' as a humble complement and sincere expression of his faith.
It is in the Missae and the Mass in b that we experience again Bach's use of parody and his shameless reworking of earlier movements that first see the light of day in his collection of church or secular cantatas.
