    Improved relations between Christians and Jewish people are a great sign of hope for the world.

    Sounds like its all part of Unity, and I'm reading more about Orthodox Jews who are bringing Jesus Christ to the Jews too.
    Another article at La Stampa is about: Francis: “All Christians have Jewish roots”

    Yes its very hopeful karnala...Is it not true that the TLIG messages have a Jewish aspect the way they are written?
    I seem to recall - something about the way they are punctuated???

    I love watching Jonathon Cahn who is a Christian Rabbi. Unity as prescibed in TLIG will bring a wonder of richness and renew what is currently broken...

    TLIG says the messages are Recognizably Jewish: http://www.tlig.org/en/interreligious/seraphim/

    I subscribe to Jonathon Cahn's youtubes. I've also heard him say, he's an Orthodox Jew and is doing wonders with the Protestants in America - bringing Unity.

    Just read today: In Meeting With Pope, Orthodox Rabbis Accept Catholics as “Partners”

    The Jewish delegation presented the pope with a 9-page response to the Nostra Aetate, entitled “Between Jerusalem and Rome: Reflections on 50 Years of Nostra Aetate”. The document acknowledged the “irreconcilable differences” while paving the way for improved relations.

    We acknowledge that this fraternity cannot sweep away our doctrinal differences. It does, rather, reinforce genuine mutual positive dispositions towards fundamental values that we share, including but not limited to reverence for the Hebrew Bible.

    Pope john Paul 2 refered to the Jewish people as our older brothers and sisters...


    That is really important!
    Someone pointed out "ecumania" is of no use i.e if ecunemism descends into a watered down version of everything in order to get along -under some sort of woolly liberal umbrella!

    I often think though the Lord told the story about the good Samaritan to illustrate none of us have a monopoly in goodness. I think Our Lady was asked in Medugorje who was the Holiest person in town ,the Blessed Mother mentioned an elderly muslim woman who was known for her genuine piety.
