French Cardinal Urges Friendship for Christians, Jews
PARIS, (JTA) — One of
France's leading Catholic pre-
lates urged that Christians
cleanse themselves of anti-
Semitism and work for "the im-
portant concept of Jewish-Chris-
The appeal was made by Car-
dinal Gerlier, Archbishop of
Lyons, in an introduction writ-
ten for a book by a priest, Jean
Toulat, dealing with the Jewish
problem. "The Ecumenical spir-
it and not less the Biblical re-
vival must engage all Christians
to revise the position of Israel's
sins and lead them to discover
in Judaism the roots from
which all Christian cults stem,"
the Cardinal asserted.
Cardinal Gerlier, who was one
of the leaders of the "liberal"
movement in the first phase of
the Ecumenical Council in
Rome, recalled Paul's belief
that a day would come when
Israel and the Church would
form "a single nation before
God." He added that such "per-
spectives" have been "crushed
by centuries of anti-Semitism."
Declaring that "it is not cer-
tain that all traces of anti-
Semitism have disappeared"
even in some who call them-
selves disciples of Christianity,
he called for Jewish-Christian
understanding and urged all
Christians to further this "sin-
cerely and wholeheartedly."
Jewish sources read the
statement with satisfaction.
Some observers suggested that
coming just after the Cardinal's
return from Rome, his state-
ment might foreshadow a major
move in support of his stand
on Jewish-Christian relations.
