comment Is there a deeper meaning for the reason for the new translation of the “Sanctus?”
The link you provided says basically the same thing I've heard: "All the new translation does is tighten up some very loose translations of the Latin text, restore a certain dignity to the English text of the Mass, and reinstate a few lines..." Another article mentioned that the updated translation is more poetic and metaphorical in it's language. Anyway, TL;DR: No.

comment What does the Catholic Church mean when it says In-vitro Fertilization separates the procreative act from procreation?
My understanding is that the Catholic reasoning is: 1) sex is the method God gave Man for creating life 2) sex is the only God-approved method for Man to create life 3) sex is only approved of by God when used for the creation of life. Everything follows from these 3 precepts: IVF is out because it's creating life w/out sex. Ditto artificial insemination. Birth control is out because it's used to have sex while preventing procreation. Basically, reason #2 (embryos destroyed) isn't part of why IVF isn't allowed.

comment What is this box that can be found in Catholic churches?
From that picture, it's hard to say, it could just be "a lamp."

comment Is Freemasonry now open to Catholics?
This is a duplicate question by the standard used on all SE sites: there is an answer on that other question which is also a relevant answer to this question.

comment What's the reasoning behind sacramental architecture?
I see two main problems with this question: "Why does it look the way it does" implies that there's a single look or style, which I think is false. It also ignores that for a church that takes a long time to build (e.g. St. Peter's), the design changes significantly over time and the final look is an amalgam of multiple architects' ideas.
