Janet and I took a group of hardy Catholic converts to Germany to follow the footprints of Martin Luther and the Protestant revolt called the Protestant Reformation. It was a blessed and educational journey. So I found the short two-minute video from Wittenberg Germany and share it again today.
Though initially, he did not intend a schism and his questions were partially justified, he carried his inquiry/rebellion too far and left a split Church and a scandalous wound that has never healed.
I had promised people I would deliver their “95 Reasons for being Catholic.” We ended up with many hundreds of reasons that were sent to me.
We kept our promise today and delivered them to Martin Luther in person. I could not mail them to the door because the old wooden door has burned. The new doors are made of bronze and there’s a barrier to keep me from getting within 10 feet of the current doors.
The original doors were like the town bulletin board. Everyone posted things on that door. So in a way, it was nothing unusual. Here is a short two-minute video reacting to Luther’s schism which started right here.
