“Your Holiness. These are critical times in a world desperate for moral clarity and civility.
These are the remarks from Rabbi Marvin Hier on the occasion of a Private Audience with the Pope November 14th 2005.
“Your Holiness, we appreciate very much your kind invitation to dialogue and exchange views, particularly in these critical times in a world desperate for moral clarity and civility”.
It is very appropriate that this our third visit to the Vatican coincides with the 40th Anniversary of Nostra Aetate, the historic Declaration of the Second Vatican Council which condemned “antisemitism directed against the Jews at whatever time and by whomsoever.”
Only in our life time, did a handful of great leaders led by Pope John XXIII muster the courage to speak out against these flagrant violations of G-d’s law; none with greater conviction and determination then Pope John Paul II, whose message of friendship and inclusion of the Jewish people touched the heart of millions around the world.
A policy, your Holiness affirmed during your visit to the Synagogue in Cologne when you declared, “I wish to re-affirm that I intend to continue on the path to improve relations and friendship with the Jewish people, following the decisive lead given by Pope John Paul II”.
” The future of civilization depends on our ability to reach out and find that coalition of the good; those who still believe that nothing enduring was ever created by hate, no future made brighter by tyranny, no faith strengthened by fanaticism”.
We must do everything in our power to unite those tents of the righteous and the just, so that we can restore the balance and return to our creator, the magnificent world he intended.

The 2005 story is old, but the SWC sent it out again in a fresh email to display support for the Pope, after His remarks that the “Jews did not kill Jesus”.
The moment you call a man like the Pope “His Holiness” you are lost. Because the Pope is anything but holy. The Pope is the man of sin and lawlessness. Jesus never told us to call any religious teacher “Holy”, not even “Father” or “Rabi”. But rather address each other as brothers and sisters.
If anyone call me “His holiness”, I will rebuke him.
The problem with the Jewish people, is that they seems totally unable to discern the Pope. He is not at all ‘The Holy father”, but a blunt idol worshiper and mocker of the truth. Millions of non believers refuse to believe in Jesus of the Bible, looking at all the wickedness inside the Roman Catholic religion. But in the end, when there seems to be a need for a Global compromise to achieve “peace”, the Jews will embrace the Pope. Because the Pope will promise unsaved Jews, that they are a part of “God’s plan for salvation”. Just like the Pope has included Muslims, and soon the rest of the religious flock on Earth.
But salvation is found in no other name than Jesus of Nazareth.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
