[quote=cpandersen]A Catholic priest from once told me that Martin Luther requested to have a Catholic priest come to give him last rites at his deathbed, but that Melanchthon wouldn’t let him.
I neglected to ask the priest where he got this info. Does anyone here know anything about this and where I might get the source information on it?
Not sure about that, but on his death bed he is reported to have said: “It is easier to live as a Protestant, but better to die as a Catholic.”
I was reading a book by one of the saints. I think it was St. Theresa of Avila. If you remember, she had been a luke-warm nun, until Our Lord showed her her place in hell. He actually took her to hell and showed her the place where she would go it she didn’t straighten up. Needless to say, she straightened up, and became a great saint.
I am pretty sure it was in one of her books where she made the following comment, which I persume was shown to her when she was taken to hell. She said this: “Luther and Calvin are in hell, and their torment increases with each person who is damned from one of their errors.”
