(Editor’s note: the following letter was sent to Bishop Martin Amos concerning Pope Benedict XVI’s pilgrimage this week to Israel.)

The Jewish community of the Quad Cities extends its warm wishes to Pope Benedict XVI on the occasion of his upcoming pilgrimage to Israel.  

We wish the pope the blessings of a safe journey to the Holy Land.  

We welcome the papal message of unity and peace and celebrate the abiding and continuing spiritual bonds that this trip represents. 

We share in this joy with all our neighbors, friends and colleagues in the Quad-City Catholic community.
