The perfect solution... the Good Friday Prayer for the Jews! Observe:

Oremus et pro perfidis Tradunculis, ut Deus et Dominus noster auferat velamen de cordibus eorum, ut et ipsi agnoscant Iesum Christum Dominum nostrum.

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui etiam Tradunculam perfidiam a tua misericordia non repellis, exaudi preces nostras, quas pro illius populi obcaecatione deferimus, ut agnita veritatis tuae luce, quae Christus est, a suis tenebris eruantur. Per Dominum. Amen.

Let us pray also for the faithless Traddies [nasty, wretched little Trads], that our Lord and God may take away the veil from their hearts, that they may also acknowledge our Lord Jesus Christ.

Almighty everlasting God, Who drivest not away even Trad faithlessness from Thy mercy, hear our prayers which we offer for the blindness of that people, that having known by the light of Thy truth, which is Christ, they may be delivered from their darkness. Through our Lord. Amen.


  1. Brilliant!

    As the subject of your revised, revised, revised, revised, revised prayer for the Jews is no longer the Jews should we have a Flectamus genua, Levate and Oremus?

  2. I'll leave that one up to you Rubricarius; you're the expert.

    Of course one wonders if the traditional Good Friday Prayer for the Jews will ever be used by anyone. My supposition is that if Traddieland finally gets around to doing things properly they will drop the Prayer and use the new one composed by Pope Benedict XVI - in deference to multi-culturalism and Inter-religious dialogue.

  3. Er... we say what's in the book... ;o)
