Easter 2010: Jewry Attacks the Church
Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.—Exodus 9:10

I was hoping for a peaceful Easter; I spent the most important part of yesterday – Good Friday - in Church and planned the same for today. Yet, I did look at the newspapers and found yet another attack of the Jewry against the Church. It can hardly be defined as an isolated event. Last year, Haaretz shamelessly reported the Holy See is training Hezbollah. Recently, a rabbi claimed Jews need to find a new narrative. God save us: aren’t Talmudism, Humanism, Communism and Zionism bad enough? Do we need yet another Jewish narrative? The horrendous attack on the Church performed by The Da Vinci Code was also – indirectly – backed by the Jews. How many more do you want to kill for the sake of your deep pockets? Two millennia later, the indefatigable conspirators keep attacking their only savior. Jewish Terror is a fact recognized even by the Human Rights Commission of the UN.
On April 2, 2010, Capuchin Father Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher of the Pontifical Household, at the celebration of the Lord's Passion in St. Peter's Basilica delivered the Good Friday Sermon. The text can be found at zenit.org. I read it, and found a wonderful message condemning violence in all its forms, including violence against the Holy See. Considering the Israeli media wild attacks on it, this can be understood. The message even contained a conciliatory attitude against Jews. Let me quote its last words:
And also we Catholics wish our Jewish brothers a Good Passover. We do so with the words of their ancient teacher Gamaliel, entered in the Jewish Passover Seder and from there passed into the most ancient Christian liturgy:
Before that, he said: "I am following with indignation the violent and concentric attacks against the Church, the Pope and all the faithful by the whole world. The use of stereotypes, the passing from personal responsibility and guilt to a collective guilt remind me of the more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism.
Instead of going to their synagogues, several rabbis seized the opportunity to further attack the Church during their Sabbath. Incredibly, a message condemning violence is a bad one in the eyes of the Jewry. Since they are terrorists, this can be understood. Let me quote:
"I am absolutely totally astounded by this. This is folly," said Amos Luzzatto, a former president of Italy's Jewish communities.
Rome's Chief Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni said: "This is really in bad taste."
Haaretz claims that Jewish leaders around the world used words like repugnant, obscene and offensive to describe the sermon. Moreover, these leaders are attempting to smear the sins of some priests on the whole Church.
Until when, my Lord, shall we hear these blasphemous servants of Mammon? Until when, shall we listen to this Devil’s Fifth Column? Please, show us your mercy.
