" Wherefore you are witnesses against yourselves, that you are the sons of them that killed the prophets.  Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.  You serpents, generation of vipers, how will you flee from the judgment of hell?  Therefore behold I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them you will put to death and crucify, and some you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city:  That upon you may come all the just blood that hath been shed upon the earth, from the blood of Abel the just, even unto the blood of Zacharias the son of Barachias, whom you killed between the temple and the altar.
 Amen I say to you, all these things shall come upon this generation.  Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered together thy children, as the hen doth gather her chickens under her wings, and thou wouldest not?  Behold, your house (Jews) shall be left to you, desolate (abandoned to you)."
Are Catholics Anti-Semitic? No. The Catholic Church and traditional Catholics are not "anti-Semitic". Catholics cling to Jesus words as outlined in Matthew 23 above; anyone, Jew or not, who rejects Jesus as their Lord and Messiah the Christ, are God's enemies. Their history, long before Jesus, points out that they rejected not only the foretold Messiah, but they are labeled as killers and stoners of the great prophets and wise men of old sent to them. For this reason, Jesus said that the house of Israel, the Jewish nation has been abandoned by God because of their grave sins against God.
This said, the Catholic Church welcomes Jews today to repent and accept Jesus as Messiah. If they do not, Jesus words above apply. "If you are not for me, you are against me." Matthew 12:30.
The word "ecumenical" comes from the Greek word "oikos", meaning "house". The councils of the Catholic Church dating back to the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.E. were convened or the "house of God"; i.e., represented by the bishops from around the world, but not from the religions of the world; that is, outside the Catholic Church, "ex ecclesiam". The occupants of the household of God were called "Christians", members of Christen-dom, Acts 11:26; from the Latin word "domus" meaning "house"; thus "house of Christians". So, only those in Christendom were invited to these councils.

Our Lord Jesus Christ ade it clear that SATAN the devil is a demon and a god of this world who has blinded people's minds to his ways. To dismiss the reality of this would be a fatal mistake.
