Commentary on the Gospel of

Bible Diary - CMF


Has it ever struck you that in the Our Father (the pattern of all Christian Prayer) there is no mention of Jesus, his life, death, or resurrection, nor mention of any of the Christian mysteries?  This absence indicates to me that it was his own prayer.  In prayer, he was seized by one single awareness, the Father:  he was not thinking about himself.  When we pray the Our Father we are not praying to him, but with him; we are praying his prayer.  We are so close to him that we do not see him!  We (so to speak) inside his head looking out through his eyes and seeing, like him, only the Father.  We are praying in him.  All Christian praying is praying “in Christ.”
