Jews as "Elder Brothers"
During the Homily the Pope recalled his visit to the synagogue:
There is one other event which transcends the limits of the year,
since it is measured in centuries and millennia in the history of
this city and of this Church. I thank Divine Providence that
I was able to visit our "elder brothers" in the faith
of Abraham in their Roman Synagogue! Blessed be the God of our fathers!
The God of peace!
