Since Italy is the capital of Catholicism , where the Vatican is , and the Pope's main language , aside from his native tongue , is almost always italian . Since Italy is the one holding the catholic world , I think the italian language should be learnt by catholics.
I also think spanish should be learnt aswell , for the spanish speaking peoples , both spainiards and south americans , are a big part of the world's catholic population , having countries with a clear catholic majority (over 90%) .
No, but we should try to teach both church and classical Latin far more as the is the language of the Church and the latter isn't much more work while providing the classics. After learning Latin it becomes easier to learn Romance languages

Italian is indeed beautiful , easy , fun to speak , and amazingly impressive for women :)
Latin is a combination of italian and greek . Many parts of the grammar are similar to greek .
Latin is not a combination of Italian and Greek, Italian is an indirect offspring of Latin. Italian is a modification of the Tuscan language; there are multiple Italian languages.
