New efforts to bring about the conversion of Jews to Catholicism have been made by the Friends of Israel, a Catholic missionary society, according to a report published by the Catholic Times.

The society has persuaded many prelates and priests in various countries to initiate “a crusade of masses” for the conversion of Jews and masses have been said for this purpose in all parts of the world. One superior of a great religious order has promised to order 300 masses for the conversion of Jews, according to the report.
