The Beginning Of England‘s Protestant Inquisitions:
Severe Catholic Persecution Began Under Henry VIII (1509-47)
King Henry Murdered 7 Catholic Canonized Martyrs and 33 Catholic Blessed Martyrs From the execution of two cardinals, two archbishops, 18 bishops, 13 abbots of large monasteries, 500 priors and monks, 38 University Doctors , 12 Dukes or Counts, 164 noblemen, 124 private citizens and 110 women. These were all without the excuse of any particular reasons of State. Total 983.
All because he wanted a divorce, ole Henry had 6 wives, some were beheaded, & poisoned.
Generally speaking the persecution of Catholics in England and Wales in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries came in waves, caused by particular incidents or circumstances, with intervals of comparative respite in between.
The first wave was in the time of King Henry VIII, from 1534 onwards, when by act of Parliament the king became “supreme head of the Church in England” aka; Anglican, up to the end of the reign in 1547.
From these years there are seven canonized and thirty-three blessed martyrs; the best known are Sts John Fisher and Thomas More, mentioned above, both put to death in 1535. None of the present martyrs, however, suffered in this reign. ewtn
England’s Anti-Catholic ‘PENAL LAWS’
Elizabeth I (1558-1605)
Lizzy 1 murdered 48 Catholic Priests (including one Dominican and two Jesuits) and murdered 20 Catholic Laymen, all except two were condemned under the new Elizabethan laws.
The murderous Queen Elizabeth I was responsible for the killing fields of Ireland, which ran red with the blood of innocent victims. It is estimated that 1.5 million Irish Catholic peasants were starved or “put to the sword” and their lands seized by English predators, while she reigned.
Does this sound familiar in depopulating one’s enemy?
Stopping Agenda 21: Obama & United Nation’s Surreptitious Attack Upon America To Control Your Property.
Puritan Lizzy 1 even imprisoned & murdered her own first cousin Mary, Queen of Scots who was Catholic.
Henry VIII was succeeded by his son Edward VI (1547-53) and during his reign Protestantism became established as the religion of England, but there was no active repression of Catholics. Edward was followed by Mary I (1553-58), daughter of Henry VIII; she was a Catholic and under her Catholicism was restored but only temporarily. Elizabeth I, another daughter of Henry VIII and a Protestant, succeeded Mary in 1558 and Protestantism became the State religion of England once again, now to remain so permanently.
By an Act of Parliament of 1559 Elizabeth was made “supreme governor” of the realm “in all spiritual and ecclesiastical things”, in other words, head of the Church as well as of the State. (This is why England is very friendly with Islam. Islam too is head of Church and head of State.) (This is also why Hitler and Islam joined forces to de-populate Europe).
During the early years of her reign, no great pressure was put on Catholics to conform to the “Established Church” of the new regime, but the situation changed rapidly from about 1570 onwards, mainly as a result of various events in England.
First there was the Northern Rising of 1569, an unsuccessful rebellion by Catholics in the north of England seeking the restoration of Catholicism and the release of the imprisoned Mary Queen of Scots, the Catholic cousin of Elizabeth and in Catholic eyes the rightful heir to the English throne.
Then in 1570 Pope St Pius V excommunicated Elizabeth and released her subjects from their allegiance to her, which naturally increased the English government’s hostility towards Catholics. British Monarchy HATES Catholics to this day, notice how the Monarchy controlled media bastardizes The Church with intense media scrutiny of pedophilia.
This same EXACT modus was used at the beginning of WWII when they had hoped for Globalization. But it didn’t ‘take hold’ then, so they’re dealing with it now. OBTW, of all Global Institutions, The Catholic Church is the lowest on the statistics scale for pedophilia/homosexuality. Did you know The U.N. (Controlled By Bankers), DynCorp are rampant with pedophilia and pedophilia organizations?
The incorrupt remains of Pope St. Pius V (d. 1572), enshrined in the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome.
This Pope was distinguished for being an excellent leader of the Catholic Church during the moral and spiritual corruption that was rampant in England during his time. His personal integrity and sanctity were reknowned even before his election to the Papacy, and there is also ample evidence that the Lord favored him with mystical gifts, which he exercised for the benefit of the Church.
The activities of this new generation of priests alarmed the government and the result was that severe laws against Catholics, the “penal laws”, were soon enacted. An Act of Puritan Parliament of 1581 made reconciliation to the Catholic Church treason, and another Act in 1585 “against Jesuits and seminary priests”, the most infamous of all these laws, proscribed as treason the very presence of a Catholic priest in England and made it felony for anyone to shelter or assist him.
Treason and felony were capital crimes and thus many Catholics were to suffer death under these laws.
The expedition failed, but for English Protestants it was the ultimate proof that the Pope and Spain were in league with English Catholics against them and that the returning priests and those to whom they ministered were the agents of foreign powers organizing, a fifth column in their country.
The repressive anti-Catholic laws were now enforced rigorously, and thus during the last thirty years or so of the sixteenth century English Catholics underwent the longest period of sustained persecution in their history.
Of the present eighty-five martyrs, sixty-eight suffered in these years, between 1584 and 1601, i.e. forty-eight priests (including one Dominican and two Jesuits) and twenty laymen, all except two condemned under the new Elizabethan laws. The Twelve Days Of Christmas Began Here With The Hate Filled Elizabeth!
“The Twelve Days of Christmas” was written in England as one of
the “catechism songs” to help young Catholics learn the tenets of
their faith – a memory aid, when to be caught with anything in
*writing* indicating adherence to the Catholic faith could not
only get you imprisoned, it could get you hanged, or shortened by
a head – or hanged, drawn and quartered, a rather peculiar and
ghastly punishment I’m not aware was ever practiced anywhere else.
Hanging, drawing and quartering involved hanging a person by the
neck until they had almost, but not quite, suffocated to death;
then the party was taken down from the gallows, and disembowelled
while still alive; and while the entrails were still lying on the
street, where the executioners stomped all over them, the victim
was tied to four large farm horses, and literally torn into five
parts – one to each limb and the remaining torso.
The Under Ground Catholic Catechism ‘The Twelve Days Of Christmas’
- Partridge in a pear tree = Jesus Christ, The Son of God.
- Turtle Doves = The Old and New Testaments
- French Hens = Faith, Hope and Charity, the Theological Virtues
- Calling Birds = the Four Gospels and/or the Four Evangelists
- Golden Rings = The first Five Books of the Old Testament, the “Pentateuch”, which gives the history of man’s fall from grace.
- Geese A-laying = the six days of creation
- Swans A-swimming = the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the seven sacraments
- Maids A-milking = the eight beatitudes
- Ladies Dancing = the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit
- Lords A-leaping = the ten commandments
- Pipers Piping = the eleven faithful apostles
- Drummers Drumming = the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostle’s Creed
As William Wallace (Brave Heart) ~ Guy Fawkes Fights Back Against Severe Persecution, Tyranny, And High Taxation Of Catholics For Not Attending The Protestant Church Of England:
“This is the truth I tell you: of all things freedom’s most fine. Never submit to live, my son, in the bonds of slavery entwined.”

The Gun Powder Plot
Remember, remember, the 5th of November; The Gunpowder Treason and plot; I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason;
Should ever be forgot.
King James 1 (1603-25)
King James 1 murdered 7 Catholic Priests And 2 Catholic Laymen
King James 1, Another Supporter Of King Henry VIII & Persecutor Of Roman Catholics In England.
Elizabeth I was succeeded by James VI of Scotland, the son of Mary Queen of Scots, who now became James I of England. Though James was a convinced Protestant, at the beginning of his reign the Catholics had great hopes of toleration, but these soon proved to be illusory.
In 1605 came the Gunpowder Plot, a conspiracy by a number of Catholics (the best known being Guy Fawkes) to blow up the corrupt Houses of Parliament when the puritan King and the members of Parliament were present.
The plot was discovered before it could be carried out and the conspirators were subsequently executed, but strong anti-Catholic feeling was aroused and the penal laws were strengthened and again enforced strictly.
Nine of the present group of martyrs suffered in this reign, between 1604 and 1618, i.e. seven priests and two laymen. All of them were condemned under the act of 1585, merely for being priests or assisting priests.
The struggle to liberate the human mind from England’s imposed restraints in religion escalated in seventeenth-century England.
Freedom From England’s Puritan Tyranny
Roman Catholic Guy Fawkes (1570 – 1606)
Roman Catholic Guy Fawkes (1570 – 1606). Guy Fawkes was only 9 years older than Catholic Father Andrew White ( First in America to proclaim and to practice civil and religious liberty ~ Settled Maryland 1634) and 10 years older than George Calvert (First in America to proclaim and to practice civil and religious liberty Chartered By King Charles 1) Five men plotted to kill James I and his advisers by blowing up the Houses of Parliament at the official opening of Parliament.
They were led by Robert Catesby. The other plotters were Thomas Percy, Thomas Wintour, John Wright – and Guy Fawkes The plotters rented a house next door to the Houses of Parliament.
They planned to dig a tunnel so they could get the gunpowder from the cellar of the house to the House of Lords – but this didn’t work out because it took too long. So they came up with another plan.
Thomas Percy managed to get hold of a cellar that was directly underneath the House of Lords. Guy Fawkes became caretaker of the cellar and pretended he was Thomas Percy’s servant. He called himself John Johnson.
The plotters managed to hide 36 barrels of gunpowder under firewood in the cellar after taking them one by one across the River Thames in the night. Everything was ready for the opening of Parliament on 5th November 1605! They had to figure out what they wanted to happen after the King had been killed.
The whole plot came about because Catholics were being persecuted, so it was very important that the next ruler would be good to Catholics. They decided that Princess Elizabeth, one of King James’ daughters, should become Queen after the explosion.
They arranged for arms and ammunition to be stored around the country for the Catholic people to use in case they had to fight to get Princess Elizabeth on the throne. Unfortunately, these big plans meant that they needed money to buy the weapons and then they had to find good hiding places.
So more people became involved in the plot. The plotters were very careful about who they told and made sure they only shared their secret with their relatives or people they knew very well. One of these people was Francis Tresham. Now, Tresham’s brother-in-law was Lord Monteagle.
As the House of Lords was likely to be a pretty dangerous place on 5th November, it is believed that Tresham wrote to Lord Monteagle, warning him to stay away from the opening of Parliament – and that’s when people started to get a bit suspicious … Lord Monteagle took the letter to Robert Cecil, who was Secretary of State for the King, and a search of the cellar was arranged.
On 4th November 1605, Guy Fawkes was in the cellar, preparing a special, slow-burning fuse for the big day. It was his job to light the fuse before making his escape to the continent. Suddenly, there was a knock at the door! Some men had been sent to search the cellar.
Luckily for Guy Fawkes, the gunpowder was very well hidden and all that could be seen was firewood. When the searchers left, he breathed a big sigh of relief and continued with his preparations, but …
… they hadn’t been fooled at all!
The searchers had noticed that there was an awful lot of firewood in that cellar and a further search was arranged. Guy Fawkes’ found himself face to face with a magistrate, who was accompanied by soldiers!He was quickly overpowered. The soldiers made a more thorough search and quickly found the barrels of gunpowder. Guy Fawkes was arrested and taken away to be questioned by King James himself.
Guy Fawkes still insisted that his name was John Johnson – even when he was tortured – and he refused to reveal the names of the other plotters. He didn’t know that spies had been watching him and they already had a good idea who was in the gang.
Meanwhile, the other plotters heard about what was happening in London and hid in Holbeche House in Staffordshire with their followers. Soon, they found themselves surrounded by an army led by the Sheriff of Worcestershire.
Of the original plotters, Robert Catesby, Thomas Percy and John Wright were killed in the fighting that quickly followed. The surviving plotters, including Thomas Wintour, were taken prisoner. Wintour and Guy Fawkes were both hanged, drawn and quartered after their trial at the end of January 1606. Now, do you remember that letter to Lord Monteagle?
We know for sure that the letter existed because it’s kept in the Public Records Office today. It is very likely that it was written by Francis Tresham, because he was the only one of the plotters to escape execution. He was taken to the Tower of London instead. Some people say he died of poisoning, but others reckon he might have been allowed to escape as a reward for giving the warning.
The Gunpowder Plot was really bad news for the ordinary Catholics. King James now began persecuting them more than ever!
Tho the corrupt Puritan Parliament may have got Fawkes in 1606, this same corrupt Puritan Parliament, would be executed by King Charles II in 1660 for usurping the laws of England.
Catholics Were In North America Well Before The King Henry VIII Puritan Schismatics
In 1611, Jesuit missionaries first set foot on our continent. Within forty years eight of them, (whose feast day is October 19th) gave up their lives near the Georgian Bay and in upstate New York. This quadricentennial of the Jesuit mission gives us cause to look to our spiritual roots.
In a short 28 years later after the execution of Guy Fawkes, in what was to Become The United States Of America, Father Andrew White in 1634 stepped upon Maryland named after Henrietta Maria (King Charles 1~ Catholic Wife From France).
On the day of the Annunciation of the Most Holy Virgin Mary, in the year 1634,” continues Father White, ” we celebrated on this island the first Mass which had been ever offered up in this part of the world.
The Severe Persecution Of Roman Catholics In England, Allowed Them Dispensation From King Charles 1st., To Leave England And Settle In What Was To Become Maryland In 1634. This Was 98 Years Before The Birth Of George Washington And 142 Years before The Declaration Of Independence In 1776.
King Charles 1st Reigned In England From 1625 to 1649.
King Charles 1st In 1649 Would Follow Guy Fawkes in Being Decapitated, For Allowing The Roman Catholics To Flee Religious Persecution From The Corrupt Puritan’s Parliament. Puritans Were Loyal Protestants Of Anti-Catholic King Henry VIII & Queen Elizabeth 1st.
The Corrupt Puritan Parliament Was Dealt A Swift Blow For Treason & Regicide By King Charles II.
When Charles II returned to become king of England in 1660, those men who had signed his father’s death warrant (and were still alive) were tried as regicides (the murderer of a king) and executed.
Anyone associated with the execution of Charles was put on trial. The only people to escape were the executioners as no-one knew who they were as they wore masks during the execution.
Maryland, USA was named after King Charles’s wife (Henrietta Maria), when King Charles was decapitated she entered a Convent in France.
She returned several times to England in 1660, to see her eldest son crowned King Charles II and her younger son crowned King James II who ruled from 1685 to 1688.
The Executioner Of King Charles 1st Could Not Be Identified, As For The First Time A Mask Was Allowed! Many Others Would Not Act As An Executioner Of A King As They Did Not Want To Be Associated With Such A Grievous Wrong!
The Masked Real Executioner Was Bribed With £100 To Do The Dirty Deed. The Piece Of Shit Leader Who Usurped The Country’s Laws To Kill A King Was Oliver Cromwell!
The English Puritans under Cromwell engaged in pure and simple genocide Of Roman Catholics in Ireland – 40,000 victims killed or sold as slaves in 1649 in the Oradours of Drogheda and Wexford alone.
It Would Not Be Until 1606, When Guy Fawkes a Roman Catholic, Fought Back Against The Corrupt Puritan British Parliament, That The Universal Symbol Of Resistance To Tyranny Would Be Born.
It Was Roman Catholic George Calvert who was the first person to dream of a colony in America where Catholics and Protestants could prosper together.
George Calvert Received This Charter From King Charles 1st In 1633 To Establish And Settle Maryland For The Purpose Of Religious Freedom.
Roman Catholic George Calvert, First Lord Baltimore (c. 1580-1632)
This Was 98 Years Before The Birth Of George Washington And 142 Years before The Declaration Of Independence In 1776. Charles I signed the Charter of Maryland in 1635, making George Calvert and his heirs Proprietors of Maryland.
But George Calvert died before the Charter was ready to be signed. George’s son, Cecil Calvert, Second Lord Baltimore, recieved the province of Maryland from King Charles I. During his reign, Charles I made certain that Cecil Calvert could maintain control of his colony.
However, the English Civil Wars between Parliament and Charles I, left the possession of the Maryland Province in question. You see the question arose when the evil Puritan Parliament committed regicide by decapitating King Charles 1.
Catholic Maryland: The First Tolerant American Colony
A. Patrick O’Hare “Catholics . . . were the first in America to proclaim and to practice civil and religious liberty . . . The colony established by Lord Baltimore (Who Was George Calvert’s Son ~ Cecil Calvert) in Maryland granted civil and religious liberty to all who professed different beliefs . . .
At that very time the Puritans of New England and the Episcopalians of Virginia were busily engaged in persecuting their brother Protestants for consciences’ sakes and the former were . . . hanging `witches’.” (50:300-01) B. Martin Marty (P) “Baltimore . . . welcomed, among other English people, even the Catholic-hating Puritans (8) . . .
In January of 1691 . . . the new regime brought hard times for Catholics as the Protestants closed their church, forbade them to teach in public . . . but . . . the little outpost of practical Catholic tolerance had left its mark of promise on the land.” (9) C. John Tracy Ellis “For the first time in history . . . all churches would be tolerated, and . . . none would be the agent of the government . . .
Catholics and Protestants side by side on terms of equality and toleration unknown in the mother country . . . The effort proved vain; for . . . the Puritan element . . . October, 1654, repealed the Act of Toleration and outlawed the Catholics . . . condemning ten of them to death, four of whom were executed . . .
From . . . 1718 down to the outbreak of the Revolution, the Catholics of Maryland were cut off from all participation in public life, to say nothing of the enactments against their religious services and . . . schools for Catholic instruction . . .
During the half-century the Catholics had governed Maryland they had not been guilty of a single act of religious oppression.” (10) D. Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church (P)
“In the 17th century the most notable instances of practical toleration were the colonies of Maryland, founded by Lord Baltimore in 1632 for persecuted Catholics, which offered asylum also to Protestants, and of Rhode Island, founded by Roger Williams.” (78:1383)
Stories of Protestant intolerance in America prior to 1789 could be multiplied indefinitely. Jefferson and Madison, in pushing for complete religious freedom, were reacting primarily to these inter-Protestant wars for dominance, not the squabbles of post-Reformation Europe.
Here we are concerned with the immediate era of the Protestant Revolution – roughly 1517 to 1600, so the above anecdotes will have to suffice as altogether typical examples.
Father Andrew White (1579-1656), on March 25, 1634, celebrated the first Catholic mass in Maryland to thank God for their safe landing in fleeing from British persecution.
They made a treaty with the Yaocomico Indians for land at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. There they stayed, and built the new town called St. Mary’s City. 1634 – They reached their destination on the banks of the Potomac, in 1634.
“This colony of British Catholics was the first to establish on American soil the blessings of civil and religious liberty.
Great-Grandfather Of President George Washington ~ John Washington (Essex, England 1631 – Virginia 1677) , arrives in America on 1657.
Grandfather Of President George Washington Is born Lawrence Washington ( Westmoreland County Virginia 1659 – 1697)
Father Of President George Washington Is Born Augustine Washington (Virginia 1694 – April 12, 1743)
Further penal laws are passed in Ireland. More restrictions are placed on Catholics. They are not allowed to buy land, inherit from Protestants or lease it for more than 31 years.
They not allowed to leave land to a single heir but land must be divided among all their sons (or daughters if they don’t have any). A ‘sacramental test’ means Catholics are not allowed to hold public office. The test also applies to Protestant dissenters (those who do not belong to the State Church of Ireland)
Finally in 1740-1741 the severe famine affects Ireland, due to England confiscating Land From The Catholics, About 400,000 Catholics die. 1732

George Washington Completes William Wallace’s Fight For Freedom, In The Establishment Of The Unites States Of America!
“O eternal and everlasting God, I presume to present myself this morning before thy Divine majesty, beseeching thee to accept of my humble and hearty thanks, that it hath pleased thy great goodness to keep and preserve me the night past from all the dangers poor mortals are subject to, and has given me sweet and pleasant sleep, whereby I find my body refreshed and comforted for performing the duties of this day, in which I beseech thee to defend me from all perils of body and soul.
Direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the lamb, and purge my heart by thy Holy Spirit, from the dross of my natural corruption, that I may with more freedom of mind and liberty of will serve thee, the ever lasting God, in righteousness and holiness this day, and all the days of my life. Increase my faith in the sweet promises of the Gospel.
Give me repentance from dead works. Pardon my wanderings, & direct my thoughts unto thyself, the God of my salvation. Teach me how to live in thy fear, labor in thy service, and ever to run in the ways of thy commandments.
Make me always watchful over my heart, that neither the terrors of conscience, the loathing of holy duties, the love of sin, nor an unwillingness to depart this life, may cast me into a spiritual slumber.
But daily frame me more and more into the likeness of thy son Jesus Christ, that living in thy fear, and dying in thy favor, I may in thy appointed time attain the resurrection of the just unto eternal life.
Bless my family, friends & kindred unite us all in praising & glorifying thee in all our works begun, continued, and ended, when we shall come to make our last account before thee blessed Savior, who hath taught us thus to pray, our Father.”
