TO KATHERINE SCHUTZIN
Luther congratulates this excellent lady on her marriage to the famous preacher, Matthew Zell, in
Strassburg. December 17, 1524.
To the virtuous Katherine Schutzin, my dear sister in Christ, Strassburg. Grace and peace!
My dear friend. I wish you joy in having so richly received the grace of God, so that you not only behold His kingdom (which is hidden from so many), but that He has given you such a husband, from whom you can learn all that is good. I wish you grace and strength to enjoy this good gift with gratitude till that day comes when we shall all meet and rejoice together, if God will. Pray for me, and greet your lord Herr Matthew Zell from me.
I commit you to God. MARTIN LUTHER .
