International letter of support for Pope Benedict

I have just added my signature to the very sensible International Declaration in Support of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI published by the Remnant newspaper. The declaration expresses support for the Holy Father's revised version of the prayer for the Jews on Good Friday. Many traditionalist might have been expected oppose the revision of the prayer but different groups have united in expressing their filial obedience to the successor of St Peter. A quotation from the letter:
By reformulating the traditional prayer without compromising its doctrinal integrity, Your Holiness has reminded the world that the Sacred Heart of Jesus, an infinite ocean of love, contains all peoples, especially that people from which Our Lord Himself is descended.
