Letter Placed by Pope John Paul II
at the Western Wall

Jerusalem, March 26, 2000


God of our fathers,
You chose Abraham and his descendants
to bring your Name to the Nations:
we are deeply saddened
by the behaviour 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.

Jerusalem 26, March 2000

Signed: John Paul II
