I’m not sure if this has been discussed before, but if it has, perhaps someone could direct me to the relevant thread
I recently attended a seminar on the Catholic Church and Ecumenism and I thought it was a very nice overview of some official Church documents…but I was left with an uneasy feeling about something that was presented to us. The speaker told us that it is the Church’s official position that there is no longer any need to evangelize Jews. I believe she referenced Nostra Aetate, but I could be mistaken. I might be reading into this statement too much, but isn’t it in direct conflict with B16’s recent announcement?? I was under the impression that Christ would draw all nations to Himself (or something to that effect :o).
I know that we still consider the Jews to be God’s Chosen People, but why would we not want to bring them into the fullness of the Truth that is present in the Catholic Church?
