Do Not Make Me a Gentile

There has been an uproar among some Jewish spokesmen because Pope Benedict’s Summorum Pontificum has liberated the Tridentine Latin Mass according to the missal of 1962, which, in its Good Friday liturgy, includes an intercessory prayer for the conversion of the Jews.

The prayer in the 1962 Tridentine missal, Good Friday liturgy, reads:

FOR CONVERSION OF THE JEWS.

Let us pray also for the Jews: that our God and Lord would remove the veil from their hearts: that they also may acknowledge our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let us pray.
Let us kneel down.
Arise.
Almighty and everlasting God, Who drivest not away from Thy mercy even the Jews: hear our prayers which we offer for the blindness of that people: that acknowledging the light of Thy truth, which is Christ, they may be rescued from their darkness. Through the same our Lord.
Amen.

The Tridentine Good Friday liturgy also includes prayers “FOR HERETICS AND SCHISMATICS” and “FOR CONVERSION OF UNBELIEVERS.”
