Raul Gonzales doing a Thomas Cromwell?

If this illustrious graduate of the Faculty of Civil Law of the Royal and Pontifical University of Santo Tomas has his way, then Her Pampangic Highness' cabinet members will get fired for attending a Mass!

Gonzales seems to be fancying himself as Thomas Cromwell. But Cromwell was an astute lawyer and Henry VIII's hound against the religious orders.

The Dominicans should dob this Secretary of Justice Raul Gonzales to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for proscribing the practice of Catholicism. The Dominican Professors probably regret having passed him in revalida.

He threatens them with sedition! Is our Glorious Queen is fancying herself as Elizabeth the Virgin Queen? What's next, she'll order Gonzales to rack the Jesuits?!?!

The Mass is the highest form of Catholic prayer. In the reign of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I people have been martyred for assisting at Mass. Some loyal ministers of their Majesties have lost their heads, foremost among them Thomas More. The lowly like Margaret Clitherow were squeezed between two heavy doors!

I hope there are some in the Queen's cabinet who take heed More's famous last words

"I am the King's Good Servant, but God's First"

Blessed Thomas More, intercede for the Philippines to Christ our Lord!
