Pope Francis to make Martin Luther a Saint on October 31
Posted on April 1, 2017 by Bosco Peters


An embittered Vatican insider (many of them saw this day coming) has leaked the document that Pope Francis has been working on together with Lutheran leaders: Stultus Aprilis.

Pope Francis, always surprising people during the four years so far of his pontificate, is preparing to announce that Martin Luther is certainly in heaven. This is called equipollent canonization – where, by virtue of his position as the Vicar of Christ, Pope Francis can bypass the ordinary judicial process of canonization.

Reformation experts think that the most likely date of the proclamation of Stultus Aprilis is on October 31. This year, that date marks exactly 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses on the church door of Wittenberg.

It is clear that, at least for Roman Catholics, Martin Luther will be able to be referred to as “Saint Martin Luther”. This builds on the work of Pope Saint John Paul II who, in the year celebrating 500 years since Martin Luther’s birth, titled Martin Luther “Doctor”. Plans are also underway to commemorate Martin Luther on a Vatican stamp. “Usually if individuals are commemorated on stamps they are saints.”

Last minute details are still being finalised. In particular, previous agreements, (between Roman Catholics and Lutherans) around the nature of justification and salvation, are being drawn on to clarify how the intercession of Saint Martin Luther will be called upon to, for example, aid the suffering souls in Purgatory.

I do not know how legit this is but it will be interesting to see how this will be played out.

Marty was my roommate. One day ge came in and asked to borrow a hammer, a nail, and a blank piece of paper, and I gave these items to him, and I've been kicking myself ever since.

Every Christian must decide for himself---will I follow Christ or will I follow Martin Luther? A Christian can't follow both, as their teachings are opposed.

Ludlow says: Every Christian must decide for himself---will I follow Christ or will I follow Martin Luther? A Christian can't follow both, as their teachings are opposed.


But you, yourself, don't even follow Jesus, Lud.

Jesus says: "But thou, when thou prayest, ...pray to thy Father." Mat 6:6

"Pray to thy Father," Jesus says. That seems clear enough.

But you, Ludlow, contradict Jesus and say: I recommend that people pray to Mary or one of the saints.

You recommend that we pray to dead human beings, contradicting Jesus. And you offer these prayers for us to pray to Mary:

"Hail holy queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we lift up our mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, o gracious mother, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and, after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, o loving, o sweet Virgin Mary." "Immaculate Mary, your praises we sing. You reign now in splendor with Jesus our King." To reject the Catholic Church is to reject God. The Catholic Church speaks for God. Yes, I speak for God." -Ludlow the Catholic.

You contradict Jesus and yet say you "speak for God."
