Catholic and Protestant Reformation: The Key to Understanding the Reformation Movement
Catholic and Protestant Reformation: The Key to Understanding the Reformation Movement0 0 5 Author: Henry Wansbrough Narrator: Henry Wansbrough
In 1517, Martin Luther’s protest ruptured Christendom. In the 1960s, the Second Vatican Council concentrated its energy on understanding and overcoming the longstanding division between Catholics and Protestants with the hope of attaining unity.
This series explores the reform efforts undertaken by three great Councils of the Church: Trent, Vatican I, and Vatican II. Stimulating theological discussions, amusing anecdotes, personal recollections, and touches of British humor are never in short supply with Fr. Wansbrough.
At the World Lutheran Congress in Lund, Pope Francis gave thanks for the dissenting 16th-century German friar. At the time of Luther’s protest, the Church was indeed in need of reform. Pastoral care had fallen off and financial corruption had reached scandalously high levels.
Spurred into action by Luther’s protest, a reformation of the Catholic Church was led from within, by the papacy. It is a movement in which Fr. Wansbrough urges all Christians—not Catholics alone—to take an active part.
Whatever your background, under Fr. Wansbrough’s guidance, you will gain new understanding and hope for Christianity’s future.
