THE ORIGINAL AND COMPLETE 1582-1610 DOUAI-RHEIMS
CATHOLIC TRANSLATION OF THE LATIN VULGATE
"The Douay–Rheims Bible (pronounced /ˌduːeɪ/ or /ˌdaʊ.eɪ ˈriːmz/) (also known as the Rheims–Douai Bible or Douai Bible, and abbreviated as D–R and DV) is a translation of the Bible from the Latin Vulgate into English made by members of the English College, Douai, in the service of the Catholic Church. The New Testament portion was published in Reims, France, in 1582, in one volume with extensive commentary and notes. The Old Testament portion was published in two volumes thirty years later by the University of Douai. The first volume, covering Genesis through Job, was published in 1609; the second, covering Psalms to 2 Machabees plus the apocrypha of the Clementine Vulgate was published in 1610. Marginal notes took up the bulk of the volumes and had a strong polemical and patristic character. They offered insights on issues of translation, and on the Hebrew and Greek source texts of the Vulgate. The purpose of the version, both the text and notes, was to uphold Catholic tradition in the face of the Protestant Reformation which up till then had overwhelmingly dominated Elizabethan religion and academic debate. As such it was an impressive effort by English Catholics to support the Counter-Reformation." - souce: wikipedia

Princeton's Library has an incomplete version of this text, and before our release, this was the only one available in the world, but now we have the complete version. This is extremely valuable, so make sure to download it and give it to a priest to study from. With the nature of this war with Freemasonry, preserving texts such as the original Douai-Rheims from 1582-1610 is extremely important.

“We control the seminaries, the academic departments of theology, the catechetical and liturgical institutions, the publishing houses, the magazines that matter and the chanceries. Most of the bishops are now on our side and those that aren't have been neutralized. Anybody who wants a future in the hierarchy or the Catholic academy has no choice but to co-operate.” - Fr.

“The mutability of the past is the central tenet of Ingsoc. Past events, it is argued, have no objective existence, but survive only in written records and in human memories. The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon. And since the Party is in full control of all records and in equally full control of the minds of its members, it follows that the past is whatever the Party chooses to make it. It also follows that though the past is alterable, it never has been altered in any specific instance.” - George Orwell's 1984, page 124
“Sometimes, indeed, you could put your finger on a definite lie. It was not true, for example, as was claimed in the Party history books, that the Party had invented aeroplanes. He remembered aeroplanes since his earliest childhood. But you could prove nothing. There was never any evidence. Just once in his whole life he had held in his hands unmistakable documentary proof of the falsification of an historical fact.” - George Orwell's 1984, page 20
A HISTORIC ACCOUNT OF THE MASONIC WAR ON BOOKS
Books such as the 1582 Douai-Rheims Version are extremely dangerous to the Judeo-Masonic machine and its design of a New World Order without a Catholic Church. In fact, if you were caught with or in the act of distributing a Catholic Bible in England, you were tried for treason up until 1800. Here is an article from Catholic World, November 1880, explaining the consequences of translating this version. It contains a list of Catholic Clergymen who were tortured and killed over its contents by the Government of England. Pardon the length, but it is worth reading to get an idea of what was being covered up. You can then draw your own conclusions about its relevance and why it was so important for the Masonic State to destroy. You may also realize that if you are going to read a Catholic Bible, not reading this 1582 Douai-Rheims version in English is equivalent to ignoring the sacrifices made by these Saints martyred by the English Government for our Catholic faith. It is suggested that you not do that.
THE CHURCH UNDER ELIZABETH
By the Rev. Frederick George Lee, vicar of All-Saints, Lambeth, author of Historical Sketches of the Reformation
From Catholic World, Nov. 1880
In the history of no land is more strikingly illustrated the plausibility of the saying of the Latin satirist, “Difficile est scribere verum,” than in the case of the annals of England, especially so in treating of the change of religion in the sixteenth century. But how much is the difficulty enhanced when we realize the surroundings of Dr. Lee, the author of the two beautiful volumes before us! When Juvenal said it was difficult to write the truth he meant that it was dangerous, for the profligate patricians of his time had ready clients to punish those who displeased them ; but now, though writing the truth of English history, most particularly on the epoch under notice, the veracious chronicler has the consciousness of having written truly as his sole reward. Be his labor ever so onerous, his research ever so painful and prolonged, he will have but a scanty patronage from the British public, too long swayed by the so-called histories of the eighteenth century, and still more set astray by the more recent falsehoods of Turner and Froude. One of the most favorite lies (the old English monosyllable is the most apt for the utterances of this flagitious misrepresenter of the truth) is that “the Bible was put into the hands of every artisan, who read it with avidity at the street-corners and at his fireside,” etc. How many men were able to read at the time? The price of the first edition of the Bishops’ Bible, with prefaces by Cranmer and Parker, Lowndes states to have been set down at (English Pound sign)60 IOS. English money of our day. It was printed by Richard Jugge in 1568, and no kind of Bible was attainable throughout Elizabeth’s long reign by the wretchedly-paid artisan, who, even if he knew how to read, would prefer a loaf of bread or a draught of beer to the miserable hash of barbarous English presented by Tyndale as the “sacred buke.” Another falsehood, not the less so though only implied, with which Mr. Froude favors us is that to the Reformation we owe the translation of the Bible. Now, in Italy, Germany, the Low Countries, in Spain and in France, the Bible was printed on the vernacular long before Luther had the misfortune to be born ; and all the original printers, as well as the English Caxton, who had his printing-office in the cloisters of Wesminster Abbey, were Catholics, not apostates.
Only a comparative few have what may be called the courage to take up books like Dr. Lee’s and ascertain the truth from his invincible and undeniable averments. It is superfluous to say that no portion of English history has been so misrepresented as the reign of Elizabeth—“that bright Occidental star” of King James’ Bible, but who was really one of the worst women that ever existed. Queen Elizabeth ascended the throne of England over the wrecks of a nation trampled to the earth by a mushroom aristocracy, enriched and rampant from the plunder of the church and the heritage of the poor ; for the old nobility had been all but annihilated by the Wars of the Roses. Some eighty thousand of the despoiled and evicted, the hitherto employers and employed, had been hanged or otherwise “disposed of” for manifesting their desolation in the reign of her father ; and the long and dreary interval of contending factions in the reign of the wretched boy-king, and the rule by a profligate and domineering council of affairs during the reign, but not the rule, of Mary, must have made a harassed people experience hope at the accession of Elizabeth.
Her reign it is the custom even to this day to celebrate as the most glorious era in the British annals ; but whatever celebrity it possessed did it not owe in great measure to the darkness of the times, the habitual slavery of the people, the sex and undoubted ability of the monarch, and the talents of an utterly unprincipled ministry? Queen Elizabeth has been accredited with virtues whose sole existence consisted in the assertion of her prejudiced eulogists. Her wisdom was not that of truth and right, but of a cool, penetrating sagacity, prompt, vigilant, and inexorable. The energy of her resolution and her profound dissimulation accomplished what no other attribute of her mind nor her physical powers would have been able to surmount. By the potent use of hypocrisy, falsehood, and bribery she managed to keep her neighbors of the Continent in a blaze of war or enveloped in the dark clouds of mutual distrust, whilst with gold, intrigues, and promises, through subtle agents, she made an Aceldama of distracted Ireland and Scotland. At home she was despotic, abroad she was victorious. By her buccaneer heroes, Drake, Frobisher, Hawkins, she plundered the subjects of her relative Philip, whose gigantic remonstrance in the shape of the Armada was consigned to destruction through the agency of the elements and the superior skill of her hardy and invincible seamen, mostly pirates as they were. The people admired her because she was a successful queen, and she liked her people because they were submissive slaves. By her acuteness she secured able ministers, who served her with fidelity because they feared her anger, and they flattered her vanity because their doing so prolonged her favors. But they served her at their peril, and she selected and sacrificed them with equal cunning and indifference, as witness her conduct to Walsingham, Davidson, and others. She affected learning and professed religion—the latter of an inexplicable description. However, in the one she was a pedant without depth, and in the other a bigot without devotion or even morality. She plundered her people to be independent of her Parliament, and bullied her Parliament to be independent of her people. In fine, the external glory of England under her administration rose so high in the obtuse vision of her contemporaries and the concurrent glorification of the trembling parasites who prostrated before her that the stunted intelligence of her day even led good men to believe that Providence seemed in her case to have condoned every disregard of moral principle and to smile even upon the vies of this too celebrated female tyrant.
This is the summary of Queen Elizabeth’s character which we venture to make from a close perusal of the work of Dr. Lee. Upon the inner life of Queen Elizabeth we will not enter. It is here set down in “words of fire,” and we would not transfer to these pages a scintilla even from the ashes. The woeful straits to which this self-conscious yet recusant believer in the truth brought the honest professors of the true religion are set down in these pages with appalling realism as well as with irrefragable veracity. Nothing but an overwhelming conviction of the wrong which has been done to the English-reading race, to the cause of Christianity even, not to speak of common honor and honesty, by “those delators of honor and honesty called historians” who have deified this English monarch, could have impelled this devoted Anglican clergyman to write these fearless volumes, which really constitute, under the circumstances, one of the greatest literary wonders of our age.
Even to those who know that Queen Mary has been most cruelly maligned in reference to the Smithfield burnings ; that it was her council, before whom she was powerless, who were the acting agents in those scenes ; that Cranmer himself would not permit the boy Edward to save a young lady victim from Cranmer and the stake ; that Cranmer and the bishops burned in Mary’s reign were rebels to Mary and suffered as heretics by her council, who themselves became Protestants in the next reign—even to those students of history who know all these things Dr. Lee presents a fresh and appaling catalogue of slaughter against Elizabeth on the score of religion. Mary’s council, over whom she had no power, burned a few rebel bishops against Mary’s will ; Elizabeth, of her own free will, with the obsequious concurrence of a ministry, her creatures, did not burn, but hanged, drew, disemboweled, and quartered, or stifled and racked in her pestilent jails, Heaven knows how many good, harmless, humble teachers of the faith of her ancestors and of theirs. We have greatly abridged the details from the appendix to the second volume ; and yet we fear the length of the list will be regarded as too extended for our pages. But in some monumental way, as here, should this fearful array of martyrs, furnished by a noble witness to the truth, be placed before American reade4rs, Catholics as well as those of other beliefs.

[To this catalogue should be added the fact that hundreds of lay men and women in the ranks of the gentry were beggared by being compelled to pay a fine of (British Pounds)20 per lunar month for refusing to go to church, where, in the main, the so-called clergy were men of the most infamous lives.]
Need it be added that a howl of excited vituperation of these volumes has affrighted all within the pale of the Established Church, except Dr. Lee? If the present writer were at the freedom to speak of this high-souled witness of the truth it would be seen by the world that no nobler evidence ever bore testimony against the “felonry of history,” as Macaulay indignantly wrote in reference to the falsehoods of the Reformation pamphleteers used in the written history provided for the “British public.” How the reverend and irreverend critics have raved in the organs of the “Establishment”! In the English Churchman a “reverend” writer denounces the work of Dr. Lee as a production to be avoided and abhorred, but carefully abstains from giving reasons for the abstention and abhorrence. Not a line from the book has been quoted in this characteristic criticism, simply because, as the chapmen say in the French markets if remonstrated with by an expert on the price of their commodities, “Eh, bien, monsieur, la verite ne se vend pas.” Truth does not pay in Britian either in the work of the hand or of the truthful intellect. It has been asked by the organs of the English “Established” Church: How dares Dr. Lee, an Anglican cleric, so far consort with papists as to commune with them even on the common highway of historical truth? But why, above all, raise the veil and show in veritable aspect the crimes of the hitherto accepted heroine of Protestantism? Is not this craving to suppress the truth a proof of the identification in the self-conscious yet most reticent souls of English churchmen of the origin of their religion with the most odious criminality? And deny or ignore it as they may, such identity is a fact as solid as granitic rock. The why and the wherefore, and the consequences of the perversion of England, meet one face to face every day in the incongruous and most heartless medley called “English society.”
To sum up: The originators of Protestantism in England were, firstly, a licentious tyrant subserved by bad or timid Catholic bishops and clerics ; secondly, the quasi rule of a wretched boy-king mastered by the infamous council of Somerset, by Cranmer, Paget, Richy, and so forth, all of whom who survived the axe of mutual hate becoming “anxious Catholics” again in the brief reign of the much-maligned Mary, with the proviso that their plunder should remain in possession ; thirdly, Elizabeth, accepting Protestantism from factious motives, the plunderers being the richer and thereby the stronger party, aided, counseled, and confirmed by the help and advice of the Cecils, father and son, Walsingham (whom Elizabeth allowed to rot in his bed when he was of no further use), and Davidson, whom she perjuriously sacrificed in sullen obedience to the execrations of Christendom at her unnatural murder of Mary, Queen of Scots. That the Protestantism fashioned into an emasculated observance by evil-doers, all bad Catholics, imitated paganism in its initiation, by cruelly persecuting their fellow-mortals is no fault, of course, of its present marvelously diverse profession ; but that the cultus, whatever it is, had its base cemented with the blood of hundreds of martyrs Dr. Lee too sadly proves. We see every day glorifications of the Reformation. Reformation from what, and by whom? Cranmer, Ridley, Latimer, and all the Protestant Episcopal “martyrs”—with the exception of Hooper, who was the victim of the private hate of Paget—were all rebels as well as perjured and sacrilegious priests, just as, with the exception of rebellion, was the first Protestant archbishop, Parker. These were the men, with the lay plunderers of the poor, who “reformed” the ancient creed of England. John Knox, too, one of the murderers of Rizzio, was a priest ; and so had been the execrable Moray, the illegitimate brother and would-be murderer of Mary, Queen of Scots. Reformation! A sad mutation from the olden faith of the great and good, effected by profligate misnamed Catholics, foisted upon an enslaved and devastated country. Quis poterit reformare ipsos reformatores? In the impossibility of reforming themselves the evil genius of abandoned Catholics set to work to deform the pristine belief of a too facile yet down-trodden people.
*By the way, let us state that Dr. Lee’s volumes contain the letters to Paulet, the jailer of Mary, and his very shrewd replies respecting Elizabeth’s desire “to clear off poor Mary by poison to avoid further trouble.”
The current Queen Elizabeth is shown here in her Masonic Knights of Malta garb. Some things never change. The goal of the Masonic Knights of Malta is to subvert the Catholic Church from within and to prevent people from receiving valid Sacraments, specifically, the valid Sacrament of Baptism. Most parishioners do not understand the motivations of these “religious” orders that operate in the light of day, but when they die and realize they are excluded from Heaven because they never received the valid Sacrament of Baptism, they will then understand how serious this war is. It doesn't make it any easier when the occult has the strength of the government to carry out their subversion, but that's how the world is.
