A Prayer for the Jewish People

God of our fathers,
you chose Abraham and his descendants
to bring Your name to the nations:
we are deeply saddened
by the behavior of those
who in the course of history
have caused these children of Yours to suffer
and asking Your forgiveness
we wish to commit ourselves
to genuine brotherhood
with the people of the Covenant.

A prayer of Pope John Paul II,
at the Western Wall, Jerusalem,
March 26, 2000.
