Ecumenical pilgrimage to Wittenberg [to celebrate Martin Luther’s supposed nailing of his 95 heretical theses to the cathedral door!?]
[Ecumania run amok]
Catholic World News – June 17, 2016
[“Catholic”] Auxiliary Bishop Hubert Berenbrinker of Padeborn joined leaders of the World Council of Churches and the Lutheran World Federation on a pilgrimage to Wittenberg, the German city that was the site of much of Martin Luther’s activity.
Lutheran leaders have gathered in Wittenberg to discuss the upcoming fifth centenary of the Protestant Reformation.
Pilgrims reflected on three themes: “human beings – not for sale,” “creation – not for sale,” and “salvation – not for sale [a reference to Luther’s denial of indulgences].”
