comment Is Latin considered a more holy language in the Catholic church?
@Greg: Catholics are expected to understand few phrases the can't avoid anyway; further understanding of Latin is good while attending old, Latin liturgy, but understanding every single word is not the point of the old form of Holy Mass (however, the Bible readings and sermon should be in vernacular even in this form of Mass). The beauty and traditionalism are the biggest reasons why some prefer Latin to vernacular language. Plus, there are language-independent parts of the Holy Mass, especially the Eucharist - that's a good reason for attending Mass in a language I don't understand.

comment How did Thomas Aquinas view grace as opposed to the church fathers?
Aquinas discussed grace in Summa Theologica, first part of the second part, question 110 (or a summary here). Along with it, I just started reading a book on the Desert Fathers, and they are quite close to the idea that "grace perfects nature". To answer this question well, I need time to research both Aquinas' and patristic view on grace, and to make sure I understand your question well. I might ask some clarifying questions later.

comment Where does the Catholic church procure most of its Bibles?
Do you consider Nanjing Amity Printing a part United Bible Societies? My Czech Jerusalem Bible was printed by them, and I suspect they print English version of the Jerusalem Bible too, which would mean a big portion of Catholic Bible production worldwide.
