Prayer of John Paul II
Warsaw Ghetto on June 11, 1999
Hear our prayer for the Jewish people, whom you continue to cherish for the sake of their fathers.
Raise up in them the ever keener desire to penetrate deeply your truth and your love.
Help them so that in their efforts for peace and justice, they might find support in their great mission of revealing your blessing to the world.
May they encounter respect and love from those who do not yet understand their sufferings, as well as from those who suffer with them from the deep wounds that were inflicted upon them, with a sense of mutual respect for one another.
Remember the new generation of young people and of children: may they persist in fidelity to you, to that which constitutes what is exceptional in the mystery of their vocation.
