06-16-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 16, 2016
St. Paul wrote, “You have received a spirit of adoption as sons through which we cry: Abba! Father!” Rom_8:15bc

Jesus said to his disciples: “This is how you are to pray:
‘Our Father who art in heaven,
1.   hallowed be thy name,
2.   thy Kingdom come,
3.   thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
4.   Give us this day our daily bread; and
5.   forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and
6.   lead us not into temptation,but
7.   deliver us from evil.’   Mt_6:7-15

The Seven Petitions of the Lord’s Prayer: 

The first series of petitions carries us toward Him, for His own sake: thy Name, thy Kingdom, thy Will!  It is characteristic of love to think first of the one whom we love.  CCC 2804

The second series of petitions unfolds with the same movement as certain Eucharistic epicleses: as an offering up of our expectations, that draws down upon itself the eyes of the Father of mercies. They go up from us and concern us from this very moment, in our present world: “give us . . . forgive us . . . lead us notdeliver us….” the fourth and fifth petitions concern our life as such – to be fed and to be healed of sin; the last two concern our battle for the victory of life – that battle of prayer.  CCC 2805

Greater meaning for the words we pray so often.
(CCC = Catechism of the Catholic Church)
