    Why do Lutherans wear red on Reformation Sunday?

    Red is a liturgical color reserved for Special Days (Pentecost, etc.), and for Martyrs' Days. The focus of Reformation Sunday is NOT on Martin Luther, but rather on justification by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, which is the heritage of the Reformation (because that is the heart of the Bible and early Church).

    In Christ's love,
