In this story Reuters’ Vaticanista Phil Pullella has the lowdown ahead of Thursday’s critical meeting between Pope Benedict XVI and American Jewish leaders.
Read transcripts of Pullella’s interviews with leading members of the Jewish delegation, and see a timeline on Catholic-Jewish relations.
The long and short of it: Jewish leaders say the problem is bigger than just Bishop Williamson and his Holocaust theories, and the pontiff needs to make it clear that the SSPX as a whole must reject anti-Semitism in any form and accept Vatican II. It seems to me the latest Vatican statements have made those conditions clear–finally–so I wonder if there will be anything more from Benedict XVI.
