While this week is the anniversary of the first big publication associated with Protestant reformer Martin Luther, it wasn’t his most famous or world-changing work.
The only posting Martin Luther did that day was of two private letters. He went to bed that night never having approached any church door with a document and nail.
In case you missed the memo, this October 31 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses on the Wittenberg doors, beginning the Protestant Reformation.
In Catholics’ eyes, our admiration for Martin Luther is as misguided as holding a big party in honor of one’s divorce.
How fortunate we are that at the time the calendar was fixed, there existed an institution with sufficient authority to disseminate it throughout the known world.
Nearly 500 years later, Reformation Day’s biggest debate still rages. And history shows Martin Luther was right.
