AJC congratulates the Catholic Church and Cardinal Jorge Maria Bergoglio, who has taken the name Francis on his election as the 266th pope, succeeding the retired Pope emeritus Benedict XVI.
We anticipate a close relationship with Pope Francis, as, together with our Catholic partners, we continue to advance Catholic-Jewish relations, said Rabbi David Rosen, AJCs International Director of Interreligious Affairs.
Pope Francis has demonstrated his profound solidarity with the Jewish community in Argentina in both times of sorrow and joy. We look forward to continued close collaboration with the Catholic Church under his leadership as we have been privileged to enjoy with his predecessors.
This old Southern Baptist is praying for a fine leader for the Catholic faith.
I strongly dislike the rocks thrown from camp to camp of the Christian Church.
Let me remind all, there will not be Baptist, Methodist or Catholics in Heaven. Men’s denominations are not where this goes.
