Lutheran Quote


In this dispute I want nothing taken away from the dignity of the blessed Virgin Mary. For I embrace with the greatest reverence of mind what she herself sings: “Henceforth all generations shall call me blessed, for he who is mighty has done great things for me.” But I think that the Virgin Mary is rightly proclaimed blest if those things are attributed to her which are both in agreement with the Scripture and can be proved from there, so that the name of the Lord may be holy. No other celebration can be pleasing to her. — Blessed Martin Chemnitz, *Examen* I:383
