ישראל והכנסייה

האפיפיור יוחנן פאולוס השני בישראל

 הֵן, אַחַי, אֵינֶנִּי רוֹצֶה שֶׁיֵּעָלֵם מִכֶּם הָרָז הַזֶּה... קֵהוּת לֵב אָחֲזָה בְּמִדַּת מָה אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַד אֲשֶׁר יִכָּנֵס מְלוֹא הַגּוֹיִים. וְכָךְ כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל יִוָּשַׁע..., כְּמוֹ שֶׁכָּתוּב: "וּבָא מִצִּיּוֹן גּוֹאֵל וְיָשִׁיב פֶּשַׁע בְּיַעֲקֹב, וַאֲנִי זֹאת בְּרִיתִי אוֹתָם, כִּי אֶסְלַח לַעֲוֹנָם." אָמְנָם בְּמַה שֶּׁנּוֹגֵעַ לַבְּשׂוֹרָה הֵם אוֹיְבִים בִּגְלַלְכֶם, אֲבָל בְּמַה שֶּׁנּוֹגֵעַ לַבְּחִירָה אֲהוּבִים הֵם בִּגְלַל הָאָבוֹת, שֶׁהֲרֵי אֵין הָאֱלֹהִים מִתְחָרֵט עַל מַתְּנוֹתָיו וְעַל בְּחִירָתוֹ. (רומ' יא 25 – 29)

Fr. Carlo Colonna, sjIf we wish to grasp the meaning of God's Plan in history with regard to Israel, we must go far beyond the issues relating to the present political Israel or any other temporal  vision regarding Israel. We must grasp the role Israel has in God's Plan in the last days of history, wherein we have entered with the end of the time of the nations and the beginning of the time of Israel as God’s nation called in the end times to accept Messiah.

Rina GeftmanEvery time that I am asked to speak about Israel - and this happens often - I feel at first overwhelmed by the greatness and complexity of the subject. And so I simply try with my listeners to look at Israel, the Israel of yesterday, of today, and that of the hope of tomorrow.

World's largest Israeli flag (near Masada)St. Jerome wrote long ago that "ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." Today, largely because of a widespread ignorance of Scripture, God's unique calling to the Jewish people is increasingly delegitimized and denied, and at the heart of this delegitimization stands their biblical connection to the Land of Israel.

Jews studying the Torah….In the meantime, Israel retains its own mission. Israel is in the hands of God, who will save it “as a whole” at the proper time, when the number of the Gentiles is complete….the evangelization of the Gentiles was now the disciples’ particular task…. (Benedict XVI, Jesus of Nazareth, Vol 2, pp. 44-46).

Pope Benedict and chief Rabbi of Rome Riccardo di SegniThe purpose of my speech is to point out what the change in the relationship between Jews and Christians is about, and especially to show that in this change and in some prophetic events taking place in the world today between Christians and Jews, the heavenly Father is carrying out His plan in history looking more and more towards the day when Christ will return in glory to fulfill the Father's plan upon the world.

The Mountain of the LordI would like to present three images, one taken from the Old, and the other two from the New Testament, images which express the unique divine plan which embraces Jews as well as Christians: the mountain upon which all the peoples of the world come as pilgrims; the wall which at one time divided humanity, definitely torn down by Jesus Christ; and the tree, nourished by a single root, which should shine in the abundance of its leaves.

Israel and PalestineIn the Catholic Church, disagreements are commonplace over a whole range of issues, be they political, social, economic, religious or historical, but at the end of the day these differences of opinion can be resolved through amicable discussion, prayer and a sense of fellowship and family in Christ. There is one issue, however, that divides so deeply that it has the potential to create permanent separation, and this is the issue of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

פולוס השליחעבור רוב היהודים פולוס השליח היה יהודי בוגד; זיכרונו בתודעתם מהול במרירות בשל הביקורת שהעביר על הדת היהודית לאחר שנעשה תלמיד נלהב של ישוע מנצרת. אולי הגיע הזמן לאזן את הדעה השלילית הזו באמצעות איגרת שכתב פולוס לכנסייה הרומית בערך בשנת 50 לספירה, ובה הוא מגן בתקיפות על העם היהודי.

Robert SungenisOn September 2, 2009, Catholic apologist Robert Sungenis published a document entitled "The Erroneous Teachings of Catholics for Israel” in which he directly attacks the legitimacy of our apostolate. This document states that on the Catholics for Israel website “various and sundry claims about the Jews and Israel are being disseminated as Catholic Teaching” but these, according to Sungenis, are “not Catholic teachings.” The following is our response to Sungenis' attacks.

SIsraelometimes I hear Catholics talking about making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and I must confess that something lightly irritates me about this. “Why would this irritate you” you might ask. “What’s wrong with Catholics visiting the land of Jesus and cradle of their faith?” Nothing is wrong with Catholics visiting the land of Jesus of course. It is with the terminology that I have a bone to pick.
