I'm a life-long Catholic and have always attended what is now referred to as the extraordinary rite of Mass (also called "Traditional Latin Mass" or "1962 Liturgy"). I don't speak Latin but can read it (though I'm a bit rusty, especially with the vocabulary which isn't common in the liturgy). After becoming lukewarm-to-cold in the practice of my Faith I had a re-awakening since my late 20s and have learned much more in the last ten years than in my first twenty.

I'm also a computer programmer and created the website www.AudioSancto.org in order to disseminate the very excellent sermons of a handful of priests.

comment Is veneration worship?
Peter: I added the paragraph beginning with "because" based on your comment. When teaching teens or talking with protestants I would take a 30 second detour to introduce them to the Latin terms, define them, explain that "worship, venerate, and honor" are typically swapped for the Latin terms, but in any doctrinal discussion I would skip the English and stick to the precise Latin terms.

comment Is veneration worship?
I only just now really looked at the question and answer you linked. The point in my answer is that "dulia," "hyperdulia," and "latria" are theologically defined and specific terms whereas "worship," "veneration," and "adoration" aren't.

comment According to the scripture, when and how is the world destroyed?
On the topic of fire but not the end of the world, part of the message of the Marian apparition at Akita, Japan (1973) is this: "If men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead." Link: is.gd/IDBR4G
