Was listening to Catholic radio the other night and heard a statement I found very interesting.
As we know Martin Luther left the church to start Lutheranism but his mother remained true to the Catholic faith. When she was older and dying she wrote her son and asked him if she should become Lutheran. His reply to her was “While it is good to be Lutheran when living it is better to be Catholic when dying”
Has anyone else heard this statement? What is your take on what I see as an unusual statement considering it is coming from the founder of Lutherism?
