Catholics can learn from Luther too, says Cardinal Kasper

Frankfurt/Wittenberg (ENI). Roman Catholics can learn from the 16th-century Protestant reformer Martin Luther, the Vatican's top official for Christian unity, has said, as Protestant churches in Germany prepare to launch a 10-year series of events leading up to the 500th anniversary in 2017 of the Lutheran Reformation. In an interview published in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, Cardinal Walter Kasper encouraged Catholics to read Luther's commentaries on the Bible, and his "hymns full of spiritual power". The cardinal said he also hoped Protestantism would return to the faith of Martin Luther, "who would have been deeply averse to all of today's liberal tendencies". [457 words, ENI-08-0756]
