Vatican Refuses Cardinal Leoni's Request to Allow Christians to Work for Jews

St. Peter's Square, Vatican City
Source: Wikipedia

Cardinal Leoni, archbishop of Jesi, writes to the Holy Office to get permission for Jews within his diocese to hire Christians to come into their homes to light fires on the sabbath. Leoni regarded this sort of employment as beneficial to both Jews and Christians, but the Holy Office refuses any exemptions to the general rule that Jews may not employ Christians.

The perspective of the Catholic Church on this matter is that if Jews employ Christians, this sends the message that Jews can have a higher social status than Christians. This suggests that Jews are equal to Christians, which in turn suggests that Judaism is equal to Christianity.
