A Cuban-born Jewish banker calls John Paul II "his hero" . Interesting.

15 years ago, Bernardo Benes received a copy of Letter to a Jewish Friend. Letter to a Jewish Friend was
written by longtime Vatican observer Gian Franco Svidercoschi and tells the story of the friendship between the young Karol Wojtyla, the future Pope John Paul II, and his Jewish school buddy, Jerzy Kluger. But for Benes, it revealed much more: The story of a childhood that foreshadowed the pope's efforts to build bridges to the Jewish community.

'By the time I finished reading this little book, John Paul had become a hero of mine,'' Benes says. ``I saw how he had had a lifetime commitment to better relations with Jews, and as a pope he had changed 2000 years of injustice.''

When John Paul II died in 2004, Bene attended the Pope's funeral in Rome where he met Jerzy Kuger. When Bene returned home, he felt that he had to continue the work that John Paul II had begun. Bene founded Our Elder Brothers and Sisters to do so through education.

If you are interested in Catholic-Jewish relations, this is a great group to check out.
