On the Lord’s Prayer

May Your name be hallowed

“How merciful the Lord is to us, how kind and richly compassionate! He wished us to repeat this prayer in God’s sight, to call the Lord our Father and, as Christ is God’s Son, be called in turn sons of God! None of us would ever have dared to utter this name unless He Himself had allowed us to pray in this way. And therefore, dear friends, we should bear in mind and realize that when we call God our Father we ought also to act like sons. If we are pleased to call Him Father, let Him in turn be pleased to call us sons.

We should live like the temples of God we are, so that it can be seen that God lives in us...”
~St. Cyprian
