Pope calls on Christians, Jews to create 'a more just world' (ANSA) - Vatican City, February 13 - Pope Francis on Thursday called for greater cooperation between Jews and Christians to create "a more just and fraternal world" in a statement to members of the American Jewish Committee. Francis praised "our common efforts to serve the poor, the marginalized and those who suffer," in his statement. "Our commitment to this service is anchored in the protection of the poor, widows, orphans, and foreigners as shown in Sacred Scripture.

Francis said he was "very grateful" to the organization for working to promote greater dialogue and cooperation between Jews and Catholics.
