Wiesenthal Center urges Vatican to quickly remove offensive prayer

A Jewish group has welcomed the Vatican’s suggestion that a highly controversial prayer for the conversion of Jews could be dropped from a revived Latin rite, urging it to do so quickly.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center said in statement on Friday that the prayer “considered offensive and dangerous to Jews” could be interpreted by some as justifying anti-Semitism.

The most senior official in the Vatican after the Pope on Wednesday suggested that the prayer could be dropped from the re-introduced Latin-language rite.

  1. POETRY: Poem of the week
    edited by JOHN RETY

    POEM OF THE WEEK: Being Pious by Jeremy Kingston.

    Observe Pope Pius, scraping Jews
    like shitballs off his neat white shoes,
    the gold for his pince-nez he took
    from a girl’s jaw in Ravensbruck
    but now his pale eyes brim with pity
    for the art-works in the Eternal City,
    daily he offers prayers for them
    at a statue of the B.V.M.
    carved in white wood from Bethlehem

    Mary’s a Jewess he’ll accept,
    he weeps remembering how she wept
    to watch her son die on the tree
    more slowly than with Zyklon-B.
    We are naïve to be surprised
    Pope John Paul wished him canonized.
    – Deep in the Pit Pope Pius flits.
    Now John Paul join him there and sits
    smirking with the hypocrites.
