In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther speaks of his son:
“2578. He took his infant son Martin on his lap, and said: Oh to think that God can put such a fine black-haired angel in such a piece of flesh from a stinking sack! It seems to me like taking a pancake and sticking an angel in it. But it is a real art to make a nose, mouth, hands and feet out of a piece of flesh in a mother’s womb.” (p. 265)
