This is an utter disgrace of epic proportions, a classic example of how far the human element of the Church has fallen, how much the Faith has been lost and the general apostasy and heresy rampant in the Church.  To think that Successors of the Apostles would have lost the Faith to such an extent that they would be praising the founder of the greatest revolution the world has ever seen, the protest and rebellion against God and His Church, would be nothing short of unthinkable 100 years ago.  Those who would dare to assert that Martin Luther was a “teacher of the Faith” (!) would be reprimanded and laicized, to say the least.

An apostate priest who rejected the teachings and practices of the Catholic Church deserves to be praised, extolled and vindicated?  This man began and shaped the Protestant Revolt, whose sole purpose was to rebelliously revolt against the truth of Christ and the Church, in favor of a personal religion based on our own wants and desires, a religion without the cross, without penance for our sins, without all of the Sacraments, without Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist, without the Blessed Virgin (who is held in disdain by Protestant sects), without everything needed for salvation.

Do the German Bishops really wish to teach their faithful that they can sin and sin boldly, since they are assured of their salvation, according to Martin Luther?

Do they wish to teach Sola Scriptura?  The Church has always taught that Scripture and Tradition go hand in hand, both containing the truth.

You know, it’s funny that these modern Bishops wish to praise an excommunicated heretic, yet if we praise the “excommunicated” Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, (the Bishop solely responsible for saving the Catholic Faith, the Catholic Priesthood and the Mass of All Time), we are condemned for this and Archbishop Lefebvre is condemned as an excommunicated heretic, for not adhering to their new religion.  Archbishop Lefebvre was “excommunicated” from their liberal religion (rightfully so!).  Martin Luther is a saint of their liberal religion since he embodies heresy, error and Modernism, at its best.

If these Bishops understood the Church and her role truly, they would be doing all in their power to lead every soul in the world to the One True Church of Christ for their salvation. But, Our Lord and His Church has been placed on par with the heresy of Martin Luther’s Protestantism, to the detriment of souls and the shame of those consecrated to pass on the Catholic Faith.

I have said it before and I will say it again: The German Bishops follow their master, Luther.

“Protestantism is nothing more than another form of the same true Christian religion, in which form it is given to please God equally as in the Catholic Church.” ~Error condemned by Bl. Pope Pius IX in the Syllubus of Errors

 “Read Luther’s work against ‘the Mass and the Ordination of Priests’ where he tells of his famous disputation with the ‘Father of Lies’ who accosted him at ‘midnight’ and spoke to him with a ‘deep, powerful voice’, causing ‘the sweat to break forth’ from his brow and his ‘heart to tremble and beat.’ In that celebrated conference of which he was an unexceptionable witness and about which he never entertained the slightest doubt, he says plainly and unmistakingly that ‘the devil spoke against the Mass, and Mary and the Saints’ and that, moreover, Satan gave him the most unqualified approval of his doctrine on ‘justification by faith alone.’ Who now, we ask in all sincerity, can be found, except those appallingly blind to truth, to accept such a man, approved by the enemy of souls, as a spiritual teacher and entrust to his guidance their eternal welfare?”  ~Msgr. Patrick F. O’Hare

“He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me.”  ~Luke 10:16

“Hence by God’s eternal decree the salvation of all men, both severally and collectively, depends upon Jesus Christ. Those who abandon Him become guilty by the very fact, in their blindness and folly, of their own ruin; whilst at the same time they do all that in them lies to bring about a violent reaction of mankind in the direction of that mass of evils and miseries from which the Redeemer in His mercy had freed them. Those who go astray from the road wander far from the goal they aim at. Similarly, if the pure and true light of truth be rejected, men’s minds must necessarily be darkened and their souls deceived by deplorably false ideas. What hope of salvation can they have who abandon the very principle and fountain of life? Christ alone is the Way, the Truth and the Life (John xiv., 6). If He be abandoned the three necessary conditions of salvation are removed.”   ~Pope Leo XIII, “Tametsi Futura Prospicientibus”, 1900 A.D.

    This is part of Pope Commie (Francis’s) plan to venerate the greatest schism to befall the Western Church. Why psychos want to celebrate this is beyond me. Love rejoices in Truth. Truth is Jesus. The Church is his body. Why would any one claiming Christianity celebrate the maligning of our Lord’s body? It’s sickening.

      Obviously, those celebrating Martin Luther in the Church are under the delusion of a false “ecumenist” mindset that, of course, is very sweet-sounding to the world, but is not what Christ intended for His Church. These prelates, no matter how “nice” their intentions might be, unfortunately are preaching directly against the truth.

      And as for Pope Francis, well, we must pray. Pray that he may be worthy of the great office that he holds. “A Christian who refuses to pray for the Pope is like a child who refuses to pray for his father.”- St. Clement Mary Hofbauer

    German Bishops Hail Luther as “Teacher of the Faith”

    By David Martin The Catholic bishops of Germany are praising Martin Luther, calling him a “Gospel witness and teacher of the Faith” and lamenting that the Church hasn’t given him an “adequate hearing.”

    In a report released by the German Bishops’ Conference, entitled “The Reformation in Ecumenical Perspective,” Bishop Gerhard Feige, chairman of the German Bishops’ Ecumenical Commission, says the “history of the Reformation has encountered a changeable reception in the Catholic Church, where its event and protagonists were long seen in a negative, derogatory light.” Are the German bishops daring to call “derogatory” the pope and the good bishops of the Council of Trent who rightfully refuted Luther’s errors for the greater liberty of God’s people? If there is one person of history who could be called derogatory, it is Martin Luther. Consider his own words about the Catholic Church: “We too were formerly stuck in the behind of this hellish whore, the new church of the pope… so that we regret having spent so much time and energy in that vile h***. But God be praised and thanked that he rescued us from the scarlet whore.” (Luther’s Works, Vol. 41, p. 206) Again Luther says: “I can with good conscience consider the pope a fart-ass and an enemy of God. He cannot consider me an ass, for he knows that I am more learned in the Scriptures than he and all his asses are.” (p. 344) “The papal ass wants to be lord of the church, although he is not a Christian, believes nothing, and can no longer do anything but fart like an ass.” (p. 358) We seem to forget that Luther was a raving heretic who was driven by the devil to tear the Faith asunder in Europe. His definition of “repentance” was to reject Catholicism, evidenced by his hateful words against the Mass: “It is indeed upon the Mass as on a rock that the whole papal system is built, with its monasteries, its bishoprics, its collegiate churches, its altars, its ministries, its doctrine, i.e., with all its guts. All these cannot fail to crumble once their sacrilegious and abominable Mass falls.” (Martin Luther, Against Henry, King of England, 1522, Werke, Vol. X, p. 220.)

    Luther also contributed mightily to the mass murder of 70,000-100,000 peasants during the German Peasant War (1524-1525), which his Reformation helped to spark. Consider the following from Luther: “To kill a peasant is not murder; it is helping to extinguish the conflagration. Therefore let whoever can, smite, slay, and stab them secretly or openly, remembering that nothing can be more poisonous, hurtful or devilish than a rebel…. On the obstinate, hardened, blinded peasants let no one have mercy, but let whoever is able, hew, stab, and slay them like mad dogs.” (Erlangen Edition of Luther’s Works, Vol. 24)

    In 1526 Luther justified his killing of the peasants, saying, “I, Martin Luther, have during the rebellion slain all the peasants, for it was I who ordered them to be struck dead.” (Erlangen LW, Vol. 59, p. 284)

    Luther furthermore blasphemed Christ, thus revealing his deficit of faith. For instance he said, “Christ committed adultery first of all with the woman at the well… Secondly with Mary Magdalene, and thirdly with the woman taken in adultery.” (Luther’s Works, American Edition, Volume 54, p. 154, Concordia Publishing House) As for his teaching on salvation and justification, the man was a theological crackpot who called humble contrition “hypocrisy” and who insisted that Jesusdied on the cross so that we may sin freely without the fear of eternalpunishment. Consider Luther’s own words:

    “Be asinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly… Nosin will separate us from the Christ, even though we commit fornication andmurder a thousand times a day.” (FromLuther’s letter to Philip Melanchthon, August 1, 1521, LW Vol. 48, pp. 281-282) Each one of Luther’s charges against the Catholic Church wereirrational and false. For instance he accused the clergy of “sellingindulgences” in the confessional, which is not true. When penitents came toconfession it was common at that time for priests to administer a penance inthe form of having them place money in the Church’s treasury, because fundswere needed to complete the Basilica of St. Peters in Rome. We might say a Peter’s pence was being raised, which shouldhave excited praise, but this infuriated Luther because he couldn’t tolerate theidea of funding the “papal pig” and his palace. If Luther had all the classic markings of a Freemason, it was precisely because he was an honorary member of the Rosicrucian Freemasons, which would explain why he rejected six books of the Bible and why he spearheaded his heinous revolt against Christ which led half of Europe away from the Christian Faith.        Had it not occurred to the German bishops that Luther was possessed by Satan? Certainly he was Lucifer’s pawn, tearing and breaking, and ripping the Church to pieces, because he disagreed with Christ. It was for reason that Pope Leo X dubbed Luther “the wild boar loose in the vineyard.” He was the classic hypocrite and Pharisee, constantly “justifying” himself and accusing everyone of what he himself was guilty of. What could be said of the worst pagans and infidels of history would especially apply to Luther: he had no “faith” or “grace.”

    The Catholic Church committed no fault in its response to theso-called Reformation five centuries ago, which means there must be no apologies made. Thepapal condemnation of Luther in 1521 was truly the work of the Holy Spirit, and remains binding upon the faithful to this day. Any attempts to exonerate or “reevaluate” Martin Luther incurs the guilt of serious sin. Shall we exonerate Hitler too?
