Luther and a return to Rome


I heard it said somewhere a while back that Luther had said, somewhere, late on in his life that in view of all the divisions that were by then present in the Christian church, at some point everyone would have to look back to Rome and the Councils to undo the division.

Trouble is, I don’t know where he said that, or even if he did say it.

So the question is - did Luther say such a thing, and if so where? I don’t want to mention it to too many people in case he never said anything of the sort.

Any help on this would be appreciated.


too late everyone has found out…
