A Prayer by Blessed John XXIII for Forgivness for Anti-Semitic Persecution

Bl. Pope John XXIII

Blessed Pope John XXIII

The mark of Cain is stamped upon our foreheads. Across the centuries, our brother Abel was lain in blood which we drew, and shed tears we caused by forgetting Thy love. Forgive us, Lord, for the curse we falsely attributed to their name as Jews. Forgive us for crucifying Thee a second time in their flesh. For we knew not what we did.

* Vivificat!
