CWN Editor's Note: The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued a note about anti-Semitism, directing that it should be placed all missals before Good Friday services.

The note, the USCCB says, is designed “to help ensure that the proclamation of the Lord’s Passion is not misused to promote anti-Jewish sentiment.”

The text states that “the crimes during the Passion of Christ cannot be attributed, in either preaching or catechesis, indiscriminately to all Jews of that time, nor to Jews today. The Jewish people should not be referred to as though rejected or cursed, as if this view followed from Scripture.”
