An Open Letter to The Christian Nobility. Chapter Three: Proposals for Reform

Here we find baptism, the sacrament, preaching and our neighbor, and these are greater things, than all the saints in heaven, for it is by God’s Word and sacrament that they have all been made saints. So long as we despise such great things God is just in the wrathful judgment by which He appoints the devil to lead us hither and thither, to establish pilgrimages, to found churches and chapels, to secure the canonization of saints, and to do other such fool’s-works, by which we depart from true faith into new, false misbelief.

By Martin Luther
