Chilean Prelates attend B'nai B'rith ritualOn April 19, 2016, the Cardinal of Santiago, Chile, Ricardo Ezzati, and the Apostolic Nuncio to that country, Ivo Scampolo, attended a commemoration of the Jewish Freemasonry, B'nai B'rith, to celebrate their Pesach or Passover.
Above in the foreground second from the left, you see Card. Ezzati embracing Jews and singing their religious hymns. First row below, an euphoric Ezzati is welcomed by the B'nai B'rith director.
Second row, Archbishop Ivo Scampolo is seated at the center of the first table; third row, wearing a Jewish yarmulke, Scampolo gives a greeting to the audience. Fourth row, Ezzati, also donning a Jewish cap, reads his speech. Last row, he is lectured by the Jewish director.
In his address, Scampolo affirmed that the Jewish Pesach was a model to show us that God wants to liberate us from "our material poverty" and ended with an appeal to those present "to renew our commitment with this liberation." Card. Ezzati, in his turn, stressed the interreligious character of the celebration and declared that his faith seeks its roots in the people of Israel.
Both Prelates are meticulously following Vatican II guidelines, which have been reinforced with despotic authority by Francis.
