October 31, 2017 was the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation that started when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. What started as objections to corruption in the Church and the misguided selling of indulgences, quickly escalated into a spiritual and political revolution that changed the European landscape. Centuries later we Christians are still challenged by the words of Jesus: “that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you.” (John 17:21) The call to unity in the Body of Christ was highlighted at the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) in the Decree on Ecumenism. Since that time much progress has occurred in the way we Christians look upon each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. We Christians can learn at lot from each other.
