The pope’s prayer

Jim Brown’s Menorah reminds us of the prayer Pope John Paul II left at the Western Wall when he visited Israel:

God of our fathers, you chose Abraham and his descendants to bring Your name to the nations: We are deeply saddened by the behavior of those who in the course of history have caused these children of yours to suffer and, asking Your forgiveness, we wish to commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood with the people of the Covenant.
