On this, the 492nd anniversary of what has been come to be known as "Reformation Day" -- in honor of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenburg -- it's become difficult for me to hear the word "happy" to describe the event that "Reformation Day" is meant to recall. In fact, I find it to be one of the saddest days in the history of Christianity.
John 17 and this piece explain.
Reform: yes. Schism: no.
