It has been long anticipated with joy, hope, grief and anxiety. Well, here it is:

Oremus et pro Iudaeis Ut Deus et Dominus noster illuminet corda eorum, ut agnoscant Iesum Christum salvatorem omnium hominum.

Oremus.

Flectamus genua.

Levate.

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui vis ut omnes homines salvi fiant et ad agnitionem veritatis veniant, concede propitius, ut plenitudine gentium in Ecclesiam Tuam intrante omnis Israel salvus fiat. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

It clearly asks that the Jews be permitted to recognise Jesus Christ as the the Saviour of all men. Furthermore, the fourth ut carries the implication that the Old Law is not salvific, for the Jews must be saved as the Nations have been through entering the Church. No doubt it will be poorly spun in the media but it has the same content as the old prayer.
