It has been a month since the terror attack in Israel. Our hearts are broken to see the rise of anti-Semitic actions – including here in Canada. Fr. Penna has written a letter to Rabbi Jodorkovsky at Congregation Agudas Israel to express condolences and solidarity with all those who are persecuted because they are Jewish. At Vatican II, the Council Fathers affirmed, “The Church … mindful of her common patrimony with the Jews, and motivated by the Gospel’s spiritual love and by no political considerations, deplores the hatred, persecutions and displays of anti-Semitism directed against the Jews at any time and from any source.” May all hatred cease.
