Good Friday: let's pray for the conversion of the Jews



OREMVS ET PRO PERFIDIS IVDAEIS VT DEVS ET DOMINVS NOSTER AVFERAT VELAMEN DE CORDIBVS EORVM VT ET IPSI AGNOSCANT IESVM CHRISTVM DOMINVM NOSTRVM (Non respondetur Amen, nec dicitur Oremus, aut Flectamus genua, aut Levate, sed statim dicitur:) OMNIPOTENS SEMPITERNE DEVS QVI ETIAM IVDAICAM PERFIDIAM A TVA MISERICORDIA NON REPELLIS EXAVDI PRECES NOSTRAS QVAS PRO ILLIVS POPVLI OBCAECATIONE DEFERIMVS VT AGNITA VERITATIS TVAE LVCE QVAE CHRISTVS EST A SVIS TENEBRIS ERVANTVR PER EVDEM DOMINVM NOSTRVN IESVM CHRISTVM FILIVM TVVM QVI TECVM VIVIT ET REGNAT IN VNITATE SPIRITVS SANCTI DEVS PER OMNIA SAECVLA SAECVLORUM AMEN







Let us pray also for the faithless Jews: that almighty God may remove the veil from their hearts; so that they too may acknowledge Jesus Christ our Lord. Almighty and eternal God, who dost not exclude from thy mercy even Jewish faithlessness: hear our prayers, which we offer for the blindness of that people; that acknowledging the light of thy Truth, which is Christ, they may be delivered from their darkness. Through the same our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.



The famous liturgist Dom Prosper Guéranger, O.S.B., said:


Here [at this prayer] the deacon does not invite the faithful to kneel. The Church has no hesitation in offering up a prayer for the descendants of Jesus' executioners; but in doing so she refrains from genuflecting, because this mark of adoration was turned by the Jews into an insult against our Lord during the Passion. She prays for His scoffers; but she shrinks from repeating the act wherewith they scoffed at Him.



Saint Augustine of Hippo




Saint John Chrysostom

  • The Jews when be forgiven neither by circumcision nor by other deeds, but only by Baptism


 “For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins” (Rom 11:27). Not when they are circumcised, not when they sacrifice, not when they do the other deeds of the Law, but when they attain to the forgiveness of sins. If then this hath been promised, but has never yet happened in their case, nor have they ever enjoyed the remission of sins by baptism, certainly it will come to pass. Hence he proceeds, “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” (Rom 11:29).  (Saint John Chrysostom, Homily XIX, Letter to the Romans, no. 6)

Saint Bernard of Clairvaux


Council of Florence (Ecumenical XVII)
-The legalities of the Law of Moses may not be observed without the loss of eternal salvation.


Benedict XIV
-The observance of the annulled ceremonies of the Mosaic Law constitutes a sin.

Council of Florence (XVII Ecumenical)
-No one living outside the Catholic Church, not even the Jews, can participate in eternal life.

Saint Cyril of Jerusalem

  • God the Father does not accept the service of those who do not worship the Son


For the Father has indignation when the Only-begotten Son is set at nought. For it is grievous to a king that merely his soldier should be dishonoured; and when one of his nobler officers or friends is dishonoured, then his anger is greatly increased: but if any should do despite to the king’s only-begotten son himself, who shall appease the father’s indignation on behalf of his only-begotten son? If, therefore, any one wishes to show piety towards God, let him worship the Son, since otherwise the Father accepts not his service. (Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, Catechetical Lecture 10, In one Lord Jesus Christ, no. 1 – 2)

Saint John Chrysostom
-The Jews when be forgiven neither by circumcision nor by other deeds, but only by Baptism
-Beloved, because of their ancestors, the virtue of the latter is useless to them till they believe.

The Virgin of the Miraculous Medal contradicts the heresy that Bergoglio promotes that the Jews do not need to convert
