Who said that?

In his sermon of August 15, 1522, the last time he preached on the Feast of the Assumption, he stated:

"There can be no doubt that the Virgin Mary is in heaven. How it happened we do not know. And since the Holy Spirit has told us nothing about it, we can make of it no article of faith . . . It is enough to know that she lives in Christ."

I believe that was St. Thomas Aquinas.

A simple internet search leads you to scores of pages that attribute the quote to Martin Luther.

Yes, just click on the "he" of "he stated" and you will find the answer.

A good number of Marty's friends also believed in the Assumption, Immaculate Conception, etc. Tell a Protestant this and they won't believe you, but it's true!

You are absolutely right. Tell Pastor Chuck of Calvary Chapel that Marty believed in the Perpetual Virginity and the IC and he wouldn't know what to do. So much of their "theology" is about trashing these teachings because they are so "Catholic."
