After the Reformation they reconquered for the Church the Rhinelands, Bavaria, Austria, part of Hungary, and Poland; they established flourishing Christian communities all over North and South America and in the Portuguese colonies, wherever, in short, Catholic powers allowed them free play. They also shared an abhorrence of violence. Until I was about five years old, I have scant memories of life; a few places and events.

The slaughter of the Protestants by the Roman Catholics commenced on the 23rd of October, 1641, and continued for several months; forty thousand, on the lowest estimate, were murdered; many writers say from two hundred to three hundred thousand. Ambrose of Milan (340-397) wrote: 'When the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son, He is not separated from the Father, He is not separated from the Son'. Protestant churches include Anglican, Baptist, Congregational, Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian and Quaker churches.

In 1960 the Council was joined by the American Methodist, Episcopal, United Presbyterian and United Church of Christ denominations. Spring had opened the passes of the Alps, and Charles and his men-at-arms went on their way to meet the Diet he had summoned at Augsburg. The warmth and comfort made countless days and nights spent here possible. It was only a few months before this that the Thirty Years' War had been ended by the Peace of Westphalia, which gave greatly enlarged liberties to Protestantism, and now the western branch of the great plot was brought to nought.

You know how traitorous THAT bunch can be. Not uncommonly (as in a Litany on Labor), the minister makes a series of long invocations, after each of which the congregation variously answers, “Bless and guide us, we beseech Thee,” or “O Lord, deliver us,” or “Hear us, we beseech Thee.” Lord’s Supper is a name used particularly by Protestants for Holy Communion.
