The Pope and Repentance

By Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/rabbi_schulweis/article/the_pope_and_repentance_19980911

I begin by expressing my admiration and respect for Monsignor Vadakin whom I have known for close to three decades. I have reason to know of his integrity and moral courage, his deep respect for Judaism and his love for the Jewish people. It is not with anyone that I would broach the sensitive topic of the Holocaust and the call to repentance. To deal with the Holocaust is to touch a raw nerve in world history. Pope John Paul II himself referred to the Shoah as "the nightmare of our century." It is worse than a nightmare.
