From the article,
The postage stamp issued by the Philatelic Office for the occasion depicts in the foreground Jesus crucified and in the background a golden and timeless view of the city of Wittenberg. With a penitential disposition, kneeling respectively on the left and right of the cross, Martin Luther holds the Bible, source and destination of his doctrine, while Philipp Melanchthon, theologian and friend of Martin Luther, one of the main protagonists of the reform, holds in hand the Augsburg Confession (Confessio Augustana), the first official public presentation of the principles of Protestantism written by him.
Can you imagine. Honestly I don't know what is next. Someone just wrote a great piece, I can't think of who wrote it, I'm reading too much now, but basically it was a call to arms of a sort. I have stopped paying attention to "Cardinal So and So said this" type of thing. Until I see the word "Cardinal So and So said HERETIC" I am uninterested in anything a Cardinal or Bishop has to say. Their mild protestations are so insignificant at this point they are actually more irritating than the silence they have put us through for over four years.ReplyDelete
Well, to be honest, somare are standing up for the Faith. Their Eminences Cardinals Burke and Sarah come to mind, as well as solid Bishops like my own Ordinary, but I generally agree with you.Delete
