Vatican cardinal: dialogue with SSPX does not mean questioning Council’s teaching on Judaism

Catholic World News - November 12, 2012

The Vatican’s dialogue with the Society of St. Pius X does not mean that the Second Vatican Council’s teaching on Judaism is “being questioned in any way by the Magisterium of the Church as the Pope himself has demonstrated repeatedly in his speeches, his writings and his personal gestures regarding Judaism,” the president of the Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews said in a recent talk.

“The Catholic Church is moving firmly on the basis of the principles affirmed in Nostra Aetate,” said Cardinal Kurt Koch, referring to the Second Vatican Council’s Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions, “and Pope Benedict XVI intends to continue the Church's dialogue with the Jewish people.”
