Friends of the Rosary,

The Lord’s Prayer (MT 6:7-15), given for our sake by Christ Jesus, is a perfect model for how, for what things, and in what order we should pray.

Let’s not take it for granted as we recite it every day several times!

It begins with a declaration of faith (Our Father who art in heaven). If God is our Father, everyone else is our brother and sister. This prayer tells us who God is and who we are. His Fatherhood eclipses the boundaries of nationality, economic status, and religion we tend to impose on the world.

The petitions that follow summarize the Gospel, instructing us in what we need to desire from God: sanctification through the Lord (hallowed be Thy Name), hope (Thy Kingdom come), humble obedience (Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven), trust in providence (give us this day our daily bread; not me, as we belong to each other), contrition (and forgive us our trespasses), charity (as we forgive those who trespass against us), conversion (lead us not into temptation), and submission to His saving power (but deliver us from evil).

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

To Jesus through Mary!
