The Lord's Prayer
By Pope Francis
Narrated by Arthur Morey & Mark Bramhall / 1 hour 53 minutes
Pope Francis provides new insights into the most popular prayer in Christianity, offering readers a guide to living a life of meaning, purpose and strength.
This new work by Pope Francis illuminates the most important prayer in all of Christianity, verse by verse, in conversation with Father Marco Pozza, a theologian and a prison chaplain in Padua, Italy. Here Francis offers unprecedented insight on Jesus's most profound words, while exploring the importance of social justice, benevolence, and forgiveness, key elements of Bergoglio's papacy.
Our Father: The Lord's Prayer looks to address the concerns and hopes of today's men and women, seeking to become a guide to living a life that is full of meaning, purpose, and strength. "It takes courage to truly believe that God is the Father that accompanies us, forgives us, gives us bread, is attentive to everything we ask...what if it is not true?" the Pope writes. Challenging this doubt, he issues a call to "dare...help each other, one another to dare."
“At the foundation of spiritual life is a fact: we are children of God. To be saved is to have the right to call God ‘Our Father.’ How good to have the words of this paternal prayer explained by the man we call ‘Holy Father.’ This book is a gift.”Mike Aquilina, EWTN host and author of Seven Revolutions
“An absolutely magnificent series of meditations on Christianity's most important prayer by one of the great spiritual masters of our time--of any time.”James Martin, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
“Simple, direct, deeply pastoral, funny, and spiritually wise, this book is pure Pope Francis. Anyone who seeks a deeper relationship with our Father in heaven will savor it.”Robert Barron, Auxillary Bishop of Los Angeles and author of To Light a Fire on the Earth
