Pope expected to widen use of Latin Mass

Pope Benedict XVI is expected to authorise wider use of the Latin Mass, in a move that is already stirring controversy. The reason is that, once a year, on Good Friday, the Latin Mass includes a prayer for the conversion of the Jews to Christianity (BBC).

Whether or not the Latin Mass, on that one day per year, calls for the conversion of Jews, the fact remains that Christianity is a proselytising religion, as is Islam. Perhaps what is incumbent on followers of these religions is not to stop seeking to pray to God for what they will, but rather to be sensitive to and respectful of the beliefs of others.
