Do I really mean what I pray?
Description: Mother Teresa of Calcutta once said, “Praying the Our Father and living it will lead us toward saintliness. The Our Father contains everything: God, ourselves, our neighbors….” Examine how well you live what you pray by meditating on the Our Father Prayer with this leaflet. It makes a great handout to help people meditate slowly and thoughtfully on the Lord’s Prayer as an examination of where they need to grow in how they live the faith.
I cannot say OUR if I keep my faith only to myself and never share it with others. I cannot say FATHER if I do not trust in His loving and complete concern for me, forgetting that He always answers prayers how and when He knows is best….
Ideas for use: Parish penance services, youth group, social justice ministry, adult education, retreats, RCIA, etc.
