 Lent Retreat: The Our Father

In the Our Father Jesus teaches us that God is as intimate and unconditionally loving to us as parents are to their children.  Jesus asks us to pray in the plural, addressing God as our father, a relationship that envisions us as a community of God's family.  Jesus' prayer does not let us ask just for our own daily bread or for forgiveness for only ourselves.  We must pray as a community in the plural and commit ourselves to bread and justice for others in the proportion we want for ourselves.  In the Our Father Christians inherit Jesus' transforming vision for us and our world.

    The seven parts of this online retreat provide individuals or groups with a tool for reflecting on the challenge of the Our Father and on the questions people in our times ask of it.  May this retreat be a blessing to all who make it.  May the Holy Spirit inspire you to continue Jesus' mission in our world today.
