The JDDJ (again, for those of you who visit here more regularly

Sadly, it appears that the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification is still unread (or at least not understood) by many Catholics. I recently heard a well-known speaker (at least in some Scripture and catechetics circles) refer to Luther's heretical views on justification, and to the erroneous (i.e. heretical) Lutheran views on justification.

Such views cannot be held by Catholics; it is unfortunate that a document of such importance is still relatively "unreceived" by Catholics, scholar and lay alike.
