From Hell to Heaven

Chapter 172 - Cado’s earthly life story. Further heart tests. The infernal Minerva in state chariot. Cado’s consecrated defence-stones

1. Miklosch continues: “Now he again stares ahead gloomily, throwing a glance towards that terrible grotto, from which increasingly more violent flames are striking forth, accompanied by eerie thundering and voices that only intensest pain forced out from someone under torture.

2. Cado’s hair stands on end; his face shows fear and despair and his inward parts glow with rage. He takes a stone, saying with trembling voice: ‘Oh just come, you promised Minerva, the foundation of all evil! This stone shall measure your brain – how much of the most abhorrent wisdom devils therein. God or some devil answer me: who are the tormented; who torments them and what is their guilt? No answer, not even from hell?! That’s the way of the mighty – no consideration for the voice of a poor devil. My heart, you ask in vain, here there is comfort no more! You are lost, lost forever! Accustom yourself to hell’s diamond harness; to God’s distance and the inadequacy of every one of your prayers! But how will one get used to this upon Earth it was indeed possible to get used to the abominations which my chieftain forced me to carry out. But I was then a completely ignorant beast of prey and had no notion of any religion. Only on becoming my own master, learning to read and write and then coming across a robbed Greek Bible, was I for the first time taught of the existence of an Almighty God.

3. I read the New Testament and became acquainted with the famous Jew Jesus, whose doctrine, excepting a few contradictions, had much going for it. I had a so-called cleric brought to my court, but what were his explanations? Any old woman could have given me better ones. The person only wanted my sacrifices for expiating my sins and forbade me the reading of books that kill man’s spirit. I realized he was a rogue worse than I, wherefore I let him go and shelved the scriptures. If that made me into a devil, then I ask whether the fault is all mine?

4. If a solider has to murder people upon the battlefield, can a most wise Deity write that off to his account? No, eternally not! If however the Deity’s wisdom is shrouded in the mists of conceit in its omnipotence, then of course a poor devil has in his nothingness to agree with everything the Deity decides about him. But why do I carry on; is it not already so for poor devils upon Earth? The almighty Deity calls them into being upon ground where not a blade of grass grows for them. And upon appropriating one without the landlord’s consent the law for thieves is upon their neck. Oh thou lovely wisdom and righteousness, that gives the rich to excess and lets the poor starve to death!”

5. Continues Miklosch: “Now the flames are getting stirred up, with countless lightning shooting forth over the surging fire sea…I feel a powerful pressure building up at the back of this grotto, filled with an all-consuming fire, making me feel crushed; what effect must it have on Cado, who assumes it to be his fate!” Oooh, now things are getting wild in there! Flames and entire bundles of the mightiest lightning shoot upwards towards those celestial throngs who are still watching with equanimity.

6. Now a fearful wailing can be heard inside the grotto; Cado stops off his ears. How weirdly infernal! Now a splendid, ceremonial and imperial chariot emerges, with six glowing dragons harnessed to it. And in the vehicle, that seems aglow as well, there sits a type of Minerva with a sceptre in her right hand and a glowing lance in her left.

7. They command the glowing sea to quieten down, but it continues to rage. She waves the sceptre backwards, and a countless spirit horde of hellish appearance and dreadful shrieking plunges ahead. She commands them to tame the surging sea waves. The devils, of every vermin shape, at once throw themselves on it and manage to actually quieten it to some degree, which does not however satisfy the goddess; wherefore she summons a further large number of such spirits, who furiously throw themselves upon it, covering nearly the entire visible surface of the glowing sea with their repulsiveness, fully quietening it to the extent of its monster cover.

8. Only now does Minerva resume her journey towards Cado, who seems frozen in trepidation. He is arming himself with stones, and I notice he is marking some with the name ‘Jesus’ and some with ‘Jesus of Nazareth’. He looks singularly wrathful, threatening Minerva from afar.

9. But Minerva is barking at him: “Just dare to offend my majesty, should you desire being torn to a thousand pieces! Note I come to make you happy, and will you stone me, blind one; what is your power against mine? The entire creation and countless stars and worlds are out of me! A breath of my mouth blows them away forever, and you would engage me in battle? You craziest fool! Just behold and hear me first and then try!” Says Cado: “Mighty or weaker than a fly doesn’t bother me. Do not approach me, or you shall be served up good and proper, for I despise you beyond the bottomless pit of hell! You beautiful, bounty Satan of a Minerva, do you think I will capitulate to your tempting form? Get packing with your attractions! Verily, I would not waste my droppings on your skin! Take off or taste the power of these hands. See this stone – named ‘Jeoua!”
