Jesus on the cross declared “The definitive Yom Kippur”. Cardinal Koch refuses to knuckle under to anti-Catholic Jewish leaders.

The first U.S. appearance by the Vatican’s new chief liaison to world Jewry has left some key Christian and Jewish interfaith officials angry and distressed.

Cardinal Kurt Koch told an audience at Seton Hall University, in New Jersey, that many Jews approve the potential canonization of the controversial Holocaust-era Pope Pius XII.

Editor’s note: Perhaps if the good Cardinal would have publicly denied Jesus Christ and cursed Pope Pius XII, the Jewish leaders might have been a bit less disturbed! The real question now is, “Precisely how will the Judaisers inside the Catholic Church attack Cardinal Koch.”

The “bright spot” of the meeting: The cardinal’s assertions — plus others such as that Jews can look upon the cross as “the definitive Yom Kippur”— were met with either blank expressions or grumbling from the audience of about 60 rabbis, priests, theologians and specialists in interfaith dialogue.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall, at that meeting! Here’s to you, “plain speaking” Cardinal Koch. It’s certainly about time somebody once again stood up and boldly declared the ancient Christian faith to the original “stiff-necked people”.
