Luther’s legacy

The Irish Times - - Comment & Letters -

Sir, – Your Editorial on the birth of Protes­tanism (Oc­to­ber 28th) ends on a pos­i­tive note, hop­ing the Chris­tian churches will now see more value in work­ing to­gether than per­sist­ing with past di­vi­sive bit­ter­ness.

How­ever, this hope will only be re­alised when the Ro­man Catholic Church, as part of the Chris­tian tra­di­tion, ac­cepts that Martin Luther’s prophetic re­forms, re­jected 500 years ago, are now more rel­e­vant than ever for its sur­vival. – Yours, etc, BREN­DAN BUT­LER, Malahide, Co Dublin.
