Catholics and Jews together: more than just a hope

When the French Jewish historian, Jules Isaac, met St. John XXIII, the process of reconciliation began between Catholics and Jews which reached a crescendo at Vatican II, gathered steam under St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI, and continues today under Pope Francis. Isaac a pioneer in Jewish/Christian relations, in part because of his friendship with French Catholic poet and essayist Charles Péguy.
