Special Report: What Can Catholics learn from the Reformation about the Human Quest for God?
Some of my good friends are Protestant. One of my sisters married one. When I was studied theology in Berkeley, CA, we Jesuits hung out with the Lutherans. Not so much the Franciscans or Dominicans. Pretty much every Wednesday, we would gather at the Chesire Cat just north of the CAL campus for pizza and beer and to call each other heretics. Great fun. (Hey, Lance & Monique!)
In less than two weeks from today, the world will acknowledge the 500th anniversary of the Reformation – the submission of 95 theses to the bishop by the Augustinian monk, Martin Luther. In thinking about this event, I wondered, “How might Roman Catholics commemorate the Reformation?”
The above title is actually where my reflections went.
So, here’s my first post. Perhaps there will be others. But this one I consider thoughtful and interesting. You be the judge. –roc,sj
