Our Father: Reflections on the Lord's Prayer
Pope Francis (Author)
DescriptionNATIONAL BESTSELLER - Pope Francis illuminates the Lord's Prayer, the most important prayer in all of Christianity, offering readers a guide to living a life of meaning, purpose and strength. In conversation with Father Marco Pozza, a theologian and prison chaplain in Padua, Italy, Pope Francis offers unprecedented insight into Jesus's most profound words, as he explores the importance of embracing social justice, benevolence, and forgiveness in our hearts and minds. Looking to address the concerns and hopes of today's men and women, Our Father: Reflections on the Lord's Prayer is a guide to living a life full of meaning, purpose, and strength. "We need courage to pray the Our Father," writes Pope Francis, "to truly believe that God is the Father who accompanies us, forgives us, gives us bread, is attentive to all that we ask, clothes us even better than the flowers of the field. To believe is a big risk." Challenging this doubt and fear, he issues a call to "dare . . . help oneanother to dare." With excerpts from some of the Pontiff's most cherished teachings, this beautiful work offers words of encouragement and inspiration for all who are seeking hope and direction in our often tumultuous world.
