Good Friday Liturgy/litany


#1

Does the Latin version still have the idea for God to defend us "from the Jews and their perfidious lies?

Just curious.


#2

I have never heard that…which part of the Good Friday service?

We do have petitions where we pray for the Jewish people, the first to hear God’s word.


#3

In the wake of “Nostra Aetate,” I thought that wording was entirely removed from the Good Friday petitions regardless of whether the OF or EF of the Triduum was being celebrated.


#4

Thought so too.


#5

The wording has changed where we pray for the Jewish people then other groups get their intercessions during the Good Friday service.


#6

The EF petition has changed but it is not the same one as that in the OF.


#7

Good, I was hoping so :slight_smile: .


#8

The word* perfidious* was dropped by Blessed John XXIII in 1960 and never licitly used since.


#9

I am just curious, Andrew: do you attend Roman services?


#10

Yes, often, since their is no Orthodox or Eastern Catholic church where I am.

But the reason I asked to begin with is the Anti-Semitism I found in the Book Eucharistic Miracles by Joan Carol Cruz published by TAN publishers.

The anti-Semitism in that book is terrible. And I wondered if is was still around now.

Both of my parents were very predjudiced.
