A must read for Lent, a great gift for Easter! 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.”
