Last summer Pope Benedict XVI promised to Jewish leaders to address the wording of a key prayer tied to Good Friday celebratiosn that was said to offend Jews. That new prayer has been announced. The fact that the prayer continues to ask for the salvation of Jews has led to Jewish leaders' reaction against the new version as not having done enough. I am not sure what Jewish leaders expected since the church sees itself as representing the need to take of the message of Jesus to the world.
