From the 95 Theses

...one of my all time favorite lines:

"Why does not the pope empty purgatory for the sake of holy love and the dire need of the souls that are there if he redeems an infinite number of souls for the sake of miserable money with which to build a church?'' From Thesis 82 of the 95

This ingeniously placed as a question that people ask and that dispensing with the scandal of indulgences could alleviate. Here's to a great and joyous commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation!
