In our report on the changed prayer, our Vatican correspondent Phil Pullella quoted the relevant passage in the prayer and noted that Pope Benedict had dropped references to the “blindness” of the Jews and an appeal to God to “remove the veil from their hearts”. He also said that Jewish organisations had protested about the wording of the old prayer, which contained those terms. We also ran a blog post that listed several initial reactions from both Catholics and Jews. Remember that we are writing under space limitations for a general readership, not only for Catholics or only for Jews. In any kind of story, we have to decide what to quote and what to drop. This is not only done for religion stories — you see the same editing process going on in political, economic or entertainment news as well. Some elements in this story, for example the full texts or original Latin of the old and new prayers, are more specialised than a general readership would want.

Might I ask posting an article with the actual text of the revised prayer? I have only seen it in full over at WDTPRS, never do the news organizations elaborate for the general public what is supposed to be so offensive.
The Jews thank God they are not Gentiles. We thank God for being Christians and ask that all might know Christ also, especially the Jews as the chosen people of the Old Testament. Surely some editorial news can be made of this comparison?

It’s fairly simple really.

Judging by Joao’s informative comment, hatred of Jews is still with us, even in places where there are very few Jews. (I wonder how Joao responds to the Muslim Lobby that is making demands of the entire world.)

As they think they are right I hope they pray for Christians just as Christians do for them. For either not to pray would be discourteous.

So, is it OK to pray that EVERYONE ELSE in the World should convert and NOT the JEWS ? WOW ! May I know what is the Theological reason for this ? Hum ! What makes the JEWS SO SPECIAL ? THEIR MONEY POWER ? By which they NOT ONLY control the WESTERN MEDIA and GOVERNMENTS but also THEIR MINDS ? This is nothing BUT BULLING by the ISRAELI LOBBY in the Western World ! Let me tell you Westerners, who are SLAVES of the ISRAELI LOBBY, there are MORE CHRISTIANS and CATHOLICS today in ASIA, AFRICA and SOUTH AMERICA combined than in EUROPE and NORTH AMERICA ! NO BODY in EUROPE and NORTH AMERICA can IMPOSE YOUR LOBBIES-DICTATED FORMULAS on rest of the Christians of the World. YOU can be SLAVES to them, WE WILL NOT TOLERATE THAT, IRRESPECTIVE of BENEDICT’S and VATICAN’S succumbing to the TERROR TACTICS of the ISRAELI LOBBY to SAVE THEIR SKIN.
