According to Knight Ridder News Service, Pope John Paul, while visiting the Western Wall in Jerusalem, inserted the following prayer into a crevice of the wall as is the Jewish custom:
"G-d of our fathers, you chose Abraham and his descendants to bring your name to the nations.  We are deeply saddened by the behavior of those who in the course of history have caused these children of yours to suffer and, asking forgiveness, we wish to commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood with the people of the Convenant."

 

A LETTER FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

OFFICE OF THE CARDINAL 
1011 FIRST AVENUE               
NEW YORK, NY  10022-4134

September 8, 1999

My Dearest Friends,

          The Jewish High Holy days come once again, reminding our world of who created it, who blesses it with life and who judges it in his merciful justice. G-d who gives all humanity the dignity of being made in his image, has chosen Israel as his particular people that they may be an example of faithfulness for all the nations of the earth. With sincere love and true admiration for your fidelity to the Covenant, I am happy once again to send my greetings for a blessed New Year.

          This Sabbath evening, as the celebration of Rosh Hashanah commences, a new decade will begin. During the year of 5760 we Christians will start a new era of the year 2000, the turn of another millennium in our history. Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, has asked all Christians to enter this new millennium in the spirit of Jubilee. Part of the process of Jubilee is a call for teshuva, or repentance. Ash Wednesday, March 8th, has been specially set aside as a day for Catholics to reflect upon the pain inflicted on the Jewish people by many of our new members over the last millennium. We most sincerely want to start a new era.

          I pray that as you begin a new decade, and as we begin another millennium in our Jewish-Christian relationship, we will refresh our encounter with a new respect and even love for one another as children of G-d. Working in our own ways, but also working together, let us both remain committed to the fulfillment of G-d's reign. I ask this Yom Kipper that you understand my own abject sorrow for any member of the Catholic Church, high or low, including myself, who may have harmed you or your forebears in any way.

Be assured of my prayers and friendship. L'shanah tovah tikotevu!

Faithfully,

(signed)

John Cardinal O'Connor
Archbishop of New York
