The explanation that comes out of his mouth is: St. He would only pray to saints, mediators between us and Christ.And the other thing I think we see with Luther is because Luther felt he couldn’t love God—Indeed, Luther said: I hated the righteous God who condemned sinners—you have to place your heart and your affections somewhere on someone who appears lovely.Welcome to the largest and fastest growing online community for single Christians.Christian Mingle is the premier destination for anyone looking to date and marry within the Christian faith.Even in the most recent Catechism, the Vatican continues to spell out the value and importance of liturgies and feasts and prayers dedicated to Mary. And if you read the story of Martin Luther you see this time when he is a young man, a law student and he is knocked to the ground by a lightning bold. And Luther had never up to that age dared pray to God himself. From the very earliest days the Church and its theologians have taken Paul’s vision in Romans five of the two men Adam and Christ who determine the destiny of all people to be a very strong dominant image in salvation. And we all depend on one of them for our salvation. And this began to develop very, very slowly into the idea that somehow Mary might be a co-partner in the work of salvation. And as the knowledge of God declined so Christ receded into heaven. So the thought grew: Well, if I can’t approach Christ, I will approach his mum who will put in a good word for me to Christ.And since Christ didn't appear lovely, what Luther said he and his fellow monks did is they placed their affections elsewhere on Mary and on the saints, because Mary, this mother figure seemed to have a compassion that Jesus didn’t.
