Catholics are now able to hear Luther’s challenge for the Church of today, recognising him as a “witness to the gospel” (From Conflict to Communion 29). http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/p...hrstuni_doc_20160531_week-prayer-2017_en.html This is historical revisionism at its worst, a scandal and an outrage to anyone who has at least a little understanding of the Reformation and the life of Martin Luther. One cannot retrospectively canonize a rogue and a scoundrel and distort the truth for the sake of ecumenism. Luther was a witness to a false gospel. Sola Scriptura and Sola Fide are and always will be heretical doctrines. This Vatican document distorts the historical record and is a form of historical negationism.
