Luther’s Young Years, Monastery and Birth & Death

by Steve Ray on September 11, 2017

Eisleben: birth and baptism of Luther. Also where he preach his last sermons and died. This was also the town of St. Gertrude the Great. We has Mass at St. Gertrude’s with another fantastic homily.

Mansfeld: Luther’s childhood home and church where he sang in the choir and served as an altar boy. He was beaten by his mother and never excepted are loved by his father. His father was angry and rejected him for going to the monastery. It seems that his relationship with his father seriously skewed his view of acceptance and love from God.

Erfurt: The Augustinian Monastery where he lived from 1505-1511 and where he was ordained and received his doctorate. Our Radisson Blu Hotel is also in Erfurt.

Along the way Ken Hensley, Fr. Steve and I gave Seminars on Luther, his early life, indulgences, purgatory and salvation.
