Luther, Descartes, Kant.
Words uttered by professor Jordán Bruno Genta, in one of his private philosophy lectures on November 24, 1959: “There is a perfect continuity between Luther, Descartes and Kant, who is the philosopher of secularism, of the secularization of life...Luther begins by stating that 'reason does not really reach the spiritual', proposition continued one century later by Descartes, who was a Catholic but formed in the Suarist spirit, reaching the conclusion of the total uselessness of speculative reason; to reconcile his Catholicism with Lutheranism he would say he was not so daring as to think about God... and that it was necessary to substitute scholastic speculation by a practice that makes it possible to know the functions of the soul through the body... in other words, that everything has come out from mathematical physics... As a consequence, in the realm of science and praxis we have the progress of secularism and modernism, derived from Protestantism... This idea that everything ends in the usefulness of things, this exaltation of the praxis, is nothing more than the last consequence of the religious rebellion against the fixity and the unity of Truth. Once this unity is broken, from which all other truths derive, we necessarily arrive at materialism.
Elizabeth TudorElizabeth Tudor, who began her reign after she had just had Mary Stuart killed in 1558, was a worthy daughter of her unworthy progenitors, Bastard fruit of the sacrilegious intercourse between the immoral Henry VIII ― while his legitimate wife was still alive ― and the opportunistic aristocrat Ann Boleyn, was the vicious Queen of England who consolidated the Anglican heresy and the corrupt life model which English nobility has imitated until our time.
Christopher Hollis in “The Monstrous Regiment” wrote that the Protestant religion was imposed by Elizabeth of England against the 1000 years of Catholicism of the English people... and that Elizabeth's and Cecil's policy, moved by their hatred of the Catholic faith, had the intention of 'decatholicizing' England; not so much breaking up with the Pope to have their hands free to do what they wished with religion, but directly to banish the Mass from England “Because as long as the people could demand the mass, they would demand the priest. And so that Cecil and his friends could feel secure in their stolen lands, it was necessary to persuade the people that they could very well do without the priests.
On the contrary, thousands were the Catholic martyrs who died immolated for refusing to accept the new Protestant mass which Elizabeth imposed through blood and fire. With the collaboration of apostate Thomas Cramner, named Archbishop of Canterbury in 1533, she validated the usurpation of the property of the Church by the new rich. She “hated the Mass as if it were a live enemy and denied the transubstantiation, Jesus' real presence, and the sacrificial oblation of our Savior... she moved in a surreptitious and resolved manner towards the total elimination of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass... transforming it into a Protestant meal”; you cannot avoid comparing this sacrilege with the method employed hypocritically by Bugnini during Vatican II.
Flaunting an implacable anticatholic hatred ― wrote Candidus in SI SI NO NO of the Summer of 2011 ― Elizabeth made it obligatory, under the gravest of penalties, to participate in the new Anglican rite established by Cramner (who in the meantime had died in the stake. Watch out then! He who attacks the Eucharist runs the risk of having a bad ending)”. The lacking of the Holy Mass was the greatest disgrace for the English Catholics.
“This is how the era of the English Martyrs would begin ― Candidus goes on ― and Catholic blood began to bathe the British soil. But who speaks or writes about this? Who asks the Catholic Church's forgiveness for that?... Elizabeth, meanwhile, mobilized spies and henchmen to hunt 'popists', culpable only of one crime: being priests and offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, or. if they were laypersons, of remaining Catholic and attending the same Sacrifice... The penalty for that offense was being hanged and then quartered while still alive...”
Vice, violence, and hatred followed her perfidious reign; being it a scandalous decision, after innumerable political snares, to decree the death by beheading of her cousin, the Queen Martyr, Mary Stuart, the truly legitimate Catholic Queen who could have saved Great Britain from falling into Protestantism, and the world from the evils of British imperialism.
Father Luis Coloma narrates in his “La Reina Mártir” (The Martyr Queen) (ed.Austral), the demented death of Elizabeth Tudor. Could it have been a purifying punishment for her many crimes? “It saddens and afflicts the spirit to go over the long series of mishaps of the Queen of Scotland, and even gets to be outraged, to find at the end of the journey, her noble figure and her Holy cause beaten, while haughty and triumphant the repulsive Elizabeth and her heretical church, But it is not a good judge he who judges without noting the entire process ― and if the days of the impious are long, his death is certain and it comes at a point. That is why it is appropriate to examine this last page of the process of Elizabeth and compare life with life, death with death, and, up to what can be inferred, eternal destiny with eternal destiny” (page 219)
Being Elizabeth 55 years of age, and in a deplorable state, aged and ugly, toothless and bald, and above all evil, she fell hopelessly in love with one of her many lovers, only 21 years of age; he tolerated his amatory relationship with that 'ridiculous old woman' as he used to call her, to make use of her, but so disgracefully that Elizabeth, having been snubbed, in one of her hysterical outbursts, had him hanged. That is how her Calvary began; ten days she remained lying on a tapestry on the floor, as an idiot,without uttering a word or changing her position, unceasingly sucking a finger of her left hand, always the same, her eyes disengaged and fixed on the floor. “Once the first fits of rage and fury had passed, she stayed there, motionless and silent, possessed of that somber desperation which in the haughty spirits infuses the fixed and constant thought of the things that could have been and because of our own fault were not, and which can no longer be remedied... And without a word of remorse, or of forgiveness to ask, or of consolation she might need, her existence faded slowly in that same position... That is how Elizabeth died and that is the way her black soul fell into eternity where one of her major torments was, without a doubt, to contemplate the glory of Mary Stuart in heaven”, She died as miserably as she had lived.
Politically, during her calamitous reign she opened the doors to the new millionaires, a new plutocracy, who had become wealthy by stealing the property of the Church, sheltered under the Calvinist slogan; wealth sanctifies. Elizabeth lived in submission to William Cecil (Lord Burghley) the main one of them, who began governing England and Elizabeth in 1558 (Belloc “How the Reformation Happened”) “The prime task of the new millionaires, with Cecil at their head, was to uproot the Catholic Church to secure their robbery; at the same time that Elizabeth was forced to submit herself, as she was terrorized with supposed conspirations and popular Catholic rebellions. “In all important matters, she had to yield, because the royal power had already been radically weakened and that of the rich had already begun to supplant it,”
“Catholics (the petty rural nobility) were dispossessed of their property in the time of Elizabeth I of England by force of reiterated penalties imposed on those who refused to attend the Protestant 'offices'; those who said Mass or heard it or simply hid a priest, were hanged on charges of 'treason', sometimes after terrible torture” (Father Leonardo Castellani “El Apokalipsis” page 214),
But she was not far behind as regards her love of money, as with one of her other lovers and also partner, buccaneer Raleigh, considered a hero by Protestants, she organized piracy with four objectives: contraband, black slave trade, assault on Spanish galleons, and the bloody sacking of American towns by his pirates. These criminal activities of the queen and her beneficiaries had a decisive influence in British development and capitalist economic prosperity, and for that reason, they are glorified in the cinema.
To better understand her mentality and that of Protestantism with respect to Judaism, this little tale comes to mind; Cecil Roth (“The Secret Jews..”) says: “a ship with marranos on board, which headed towards England, was captured and taken to London, Among the passsengers was a jewish woman of such a beauty that an English nobleman tried to take her as wife; and the Tudor, also captivated by her charm, rode in the same carriage with her and ordered the liberty of all jews. But the Hebrew “left the pomp of England for love of Judaism, leaving the philosemite queen slighted”
