different days

We are truly living in interesting times. Who would have thought the day would come when the Preacher of Papal Household would be addressing the General Synod of the Church of England ... with Queen Elizabeth II in attendance? Or that he be saying stuff like this:

Justification by faith, for example, ought to be preached by the whole Church—and with more vigour than ever. Not in opposition to good works – the issue is already settled - but rather in opposition to the claim of people today that they can save themselves thanks to their science, technology or their man-made spirituality, without the need for a redeemer coming from outside humanity. Self-justification! I am convinced that if they were alive today this is the way Martin Luther and Thomas Cranmer would preach justification through faith!
