    Pope's Communications Director responds to exaggerations by Lutheran official that Luther may be rehabbed
    .  Understandable, perhaps.

  • Luther can never be rehabilitated. It is out of the question, impossible. Reunion will come precisely at this, when they realize that Luther was just one among countless figures in history, Arius, Nestorius etc who made impious pretenses against the doctrine of the Church of Christ. None of them can be "rehabilated" either.

    I don't scrutinize Papal statements in detail, but from my understanding the Pope's intention was only to stress that the question "How do I receive the grace of God?" which was Luther's "driving force" (which he, of course, answered foolishly and heretically) demands careful reflection from us too, and evermore in our secularized day and age.

    "Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day become a formal heretic ... This is a statement I would sign in my blood." St. Montfort, Secret of the Rosary. I support the FSSP, the SSPX and other priests who work for the restoration of doctrinal orthodoxy and liturgical orthopraxis in the Church. I accept Vatican II if interpreted in the light of Tradition and canonisations as an infallible declaration that a person is in Heaven. Sedevacantism is schismatic and Ecclesiavacantism is heretical.
