Our friends at the Eye-Witness have picked up on a story I somehow missed in December.
When Jews and Christians make a joint contribution through concrete humanitarian aid for justice and peace in the world, they bear witness to the loving care of God. No longer in confrontational opposition but cooperating side by side, Jews and Christians should seek to strive for a better world
That is some twisted creepy puzzle.
Here are a few more teasers...
In reading, among other, things the Vatican Commission’s report of sunny humanitarian relations between Jews and Christians, we found it all rather bewildering, to say the least. Bewilderment, we dare say, is in fact a common (perhaps intended) affliction resulting from reading many diffusively murky, but warm and fuzzy publishings from the Vatican in these times. It’s a pattern exactly contrary to the strong, clear, precise moral guidance the world was ever accustomed to receive from Rome – until the years that prefaced the Second Vatican Council....
When the Vatican Commission says Jews and Christians are “no longer in confrontational opposition but cooperating side by side” for world justice and peace, its blurred generalities tell more about what’s being hidden than revealed. Of whom is the Commission speaking? It’s left to the Statement’s reading audience to decide who was in confrontational opposition to whom.
