Vatican II Sect celebrates Protestant Reformation
Vatican releases Postage Stamp honoring Martin Luther
Today is Reformation Day. In Germany, that’s a quasi-holiday. What makes it worse this year is that it’s the 500th anniversary. That’s right: It was on Oct. 31, 1517 that a priest named Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. The errors of Luther were solemnly condemned by Pope Leo X in the bull Exsurge Domine in 1520, and Luther’s excommunication followed a few months later.
In 1545, the Church convened the all-important Council of Trent, which ushered in the Catholic Counter-Reformation, and also led to the publication of the Roman Catechism, also known as the Catechism of the Council of Trent.
