comment Is there a term for a marriage between a Catholic and a Protestant?
I don't think this should be closed, there is a specific term used in Catholic Canon Law: a mixed marriage. vatican.va/archive/ENG1104/_P41.HTM

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."
