ecclesia semper reformanda

Yesterday was "reformation day" in Germany. The Luther movie that was in the cinemas some time ago was shown on TV. Unfortunately, I saw only the last half. Luther once said "ecclesia semper reformanda" which means "the church must always be reformed." How different from UBF where the wife of my chapter leader told me "you can wait for UBF reform until we all are buried." Reformation day is not a holiday, but today is the Catholic "all saints" holiday. The Catholic church celebrates it separately from "all souls" since the believe "saints" are a special class of Christians, whereas Luther and the Bible tell us that all Christians are saints, sanctified through the blood of Jesus, not through our own efforts.
