Divine Retribution

July 2, 2020

In the year 1563, a Lutheran nobleman in the city of Erfurt, ridiculed the Blessed Sacrament as it was carried in procession by the Rev. Father Th. Baumeier. “Behold” said he, “what a ridiculous thing that old man is carrying!” No sooner had he uttered these words than he fell speechless to the ground. Dr. J. Hebenstreit was instantly called in, but pronounced him beyond recovery. A few days after the nobleman was a corpse.1
