The leader of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics had a word Thursday for representatives of the United States' 6 million Jews: "Shalom," the Hebrew word meaning "peace."
That was the concluding thought Pope Francis had for leaders of the American Jewish Committee, who had an audience with the pontiff at Vatican City, according to a report on the News.Va website, which bills itself as the "official Vatican network."
According to the news story, Francis "urged Christians and Jews to cooperate in constructing "a more just and fraternal world'" during the session. The pope said it was important for members of both faith communities to instill in future generations a "heritage of our mutual knowledge, esteem and friendship which has, thanks to the commitment of associations like yours, grown over these years."
