“At the Diet of Augsburg everything was charged with trouble and was in such a turmoil that all the world expected things to be turned topsy-turvy. Some had insolently threatened violence, and swords had already been drawn, firearms loaded. But, moved by our prayers, God so effectively helped us and opened a way of escape for us that those ranters, with their boasting and threatening, were thoroughly put to shame. God has given us a good peace and a time of grace, the like of which we have not seen for many a day and could not have hoped for.”

Luther SL 7,607
