Professor Riccardo di Segni,
Chief Rabbi of Rome,
On the day of my election as the Bishop of Rome and the universal guide of the Catholic Church, I send you my warm regards by announcing that the inauguration of my pontificate will be held on Tuesday, March 19.
Having confidence in the protection of the Almighty, I strongly hope to contribute to the progress of the relationship between Jews and Catholics, known since the Second Vatican Council, in a renewed spirit of cooperation and service of a world that can be in better harmony with the will of the creator.
From the Vatican, 13 March 2013
