After enjoying this insightful series of contemplative talks, your experience of the Lord's Prayer will be forever enriched.
When asked for a teaching on prayer, Jesus did not respond with a method or technique. Rather, he responded with words that captured the essence of his teaching and lifestyle. Known as the Our Father or the Lord's Prayer, his response is one of the most cherished prayers in the Christian tradition.
Throughout history, many have looked upon the Lord's Prayer as more than simply a way to pray. Tertullian, a late second-century priest of the Christian community of Carthage in North Africa, referred to it as a breviarium totius evangelii: a "summary of the entire Gospel". Now you, too, will come to see why this prayer is so important.
In this 12-conference series, Fr. Albert Haase, OFM, reflects upon each phrase of the Our Father in his distinctively inspirational and engaging style. You will look deeply and contemplatively at a prayer you hear or recite frequently. As you do so, you'll get a fresh glimpse of your faith through the very words Jesus gave us in Luke 11:1.
When you experience The Lord's Prayer: A Summary of the Entire Gospel, you will discover that this treasured prayer is more than a series of words to recite. It is, indeed, an inspiring guide for how to live.
