The notion that all rites in the church must be uniform is a fallacy since the existence of the various rites in the Roman Catholic Church allows for a variation of expressions of liturgical rites. Since the 1st millennium there has existed a variety of orthodox and unorthodox liturgical practices. The poor folks in the jungle are in for a rude awakening.
LUKE 17:1-2 He said to his disciples, “Things that cause sin will inevitably occur, but woe to the person through whom they occur. It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.
When the apostles brought the Gospel to the major cultural centers of their day the essential elements of religious practice were inculturated into those cultures. This means that the essential elements were clothed in the symbols and trappings of the particular people, so that the rituals conveyed the desired spiritual meaning to that culture.
There are three major groupings of Rites based on this initial transmission of the faith, the Roman, the Antiochian (Syria) and the Alexandrian (Egypt). Later on the Byzantine derived as a major Rite from the Antiochian...From these four derive the over 20 liturgical Rites present in the Church today.
The Church of Rome is the Primatial See of the world and one of the five Patriarchal Sees of the early Church (Rome, Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem). After the Council of Trent it was necessary to consolidate liturgical doctrine and practice in the face of the Reformation.
Thus, Pope St. Pius V imposed the Rite of Rome on the Latin Church (that subject to him in his capacity as Patriarch of the West), allowing only smaller Western Rites with hundreds of years of history to remain. Younger Rites of particular dioceses or regions ceased to exist.
- Mozarabic - The Rite of the Iberian peninsula (Spain and Portugal)
- Ambrosian - The Rite of the Archdiocese of Milan, Italy
- Bragan – Rite of the Archdiocese of Braga, the Primatial See of Portugal
- Dominican – Rite of the Order of Friars Preacher (OP), founded by St. Dominic
- Carmelite – Rite of the Order of Carmel
- Carthusian – Rite of the Carthusian Order

KIKO’S HISTORY OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

This is rather ridiculous since in real life, Kiko classically resembles Satan, not Christ:
