“….The preaches of Trubar inspired and infused courage in the followers of the new teaching. In the letter to the king Maximillian Primoz wrote that, about his preaches, “all the classes, especially the devotus femineus sexus – devoted femminine sex – rejoiced very much them and with tears at the eyes thanked God, for what they heard and enjoyed”.Although the new superintendent [of Slovenian church founded by Trubar] condemned with clear words the church of Rome, he dealt with it in a respectful way and didn't made personal attacks on Slovenian catholic priests, as Tulscak and Juricic sometimes did before. At the opposite he tried to gain them for the new church with mild arguments. He wrote about that to the king Maximillian: “...since the lords of Kranj called me last summer in the role of their Slovenian and German preacher, I permanently, for ten weeks, preached in Ljubljana and other locations and administered [the Holy Communion] and obtained some priests, so they ceased to celebrate the mass and began to announce the truth...”.We can realize about the success of the agitation of Primoz Trubar, of Gasper Rokavec and others assistants, from the reports sent by the county vicar Jurij Wolf to the bishop of Ljubljana Seebach: “...I have to inform what the Lutherans are doing. As you ordered to me, I announced in the church that after Sunday mass they have to sing five litanies. In the preaches I explained why and how we honor the saints and which is the difference between us and the Lutherans. When I wanted to get the five litanies, the officiants weren't touched. In fact the Lutherans ordered to the master, to the singer, to the boys and to the sacristan to not collaborate with the execution of the litanies. … Of course due to that I was in anger; but the judge of the city laughed and scoffed at the priests”.Like Ljubljana, also Kranj was Catholic only in appearance, in the heart it was already protestant. And roughly so it was in other Slovenian cities and lands. Everywhere the new teaching was gaining new followers....”.

Not for a pure case there are some days that the Jesuit media and cultural world of Slovenia are brainwashing the spectators with the obsessive hammering on the connection "protestantism" with "high culture". A keen way with which the Jesuits are not only presenting a false image of the Salvation, but are cultivating the hate of their shock troops, those billions of poor people who haven't at disposition wealth and time to build an "high culture" for themselves, hate and diffidence against the "protestants", considered members of a "religion for the elites". As reaction the larger poor social layers will put their trust, no matter if they are Roman Catholics or Muslims, in the pope of Rome, the true 'leader' who "welcome the poor people".
[I added this clarification an hour later to avoid ambiguity: The purpose of Rome is just to increase the ignorance in the population and the economical and financial crisis has been planned also for this goal. To transform the culture only in a "privilege" for the elite of servants of Rome. To increase the number of not-educated people is the goal of the papacy and of the Jesuitism in order to manipulate humanity. But Knowledge, Freedom of Conscience and Expression are deeply linked with the Salvation, as John 8:31-32 is recalling to us [see References]. To enclose the Christian message ("Protestantism") in academic circles is only a refined way to destroy it. At the opposite, an educated, intellectual person with true Christian sentiments should use his/her culture just as told in Mark 16:15, in order to announce it to the world].
"...And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH..."
Reformation Day is a religious holiday celebrated on October 31 in remembrance of the Reformation, particularly by Lutheran and some Reformed church communities. It is a civic holiday in Slovenia (since the Reformation contributed to its cultural development profoundly, although Slovenes are mainly Roman Catholics) and in the German states of Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia. It is also a national holiday in Chile since 2008.URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reformation_Day
In the United States churches often transfer the holiday, so that it falls on the Sunday (called Reformation Sunday) on or before October 31, with All Saints' Day moved to the Sunday on or after November 1.
On 31 October 1517, Martin Luther wrote to Albrecht, Archbishop of Mainz and Magdeburg, protesting against the sale of indulgences. He enclosed in his letter a copy of his "Disputation of Martin Luther on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences," which came to be known as The 95 Theses

INSIDE THE MIND OF ROME – The visit of the pope in Erfurt and the Continuing Peasants' wars of Rome
"...Many of the aristocratic families abandoned the Church and joined the Lutheran teaching, also with the intention to take possession of the church's wealth. Part of the bourgeoisies betrayed the catholic faith, following the example of the nobility, but large parts of the Slovenian nation decisively rejected the heresy, and newly confirmed their unshakable faith to the catholic Church...."
