A Lenten Reflection
Come spend some time with Fr. Gray as he speaks to us about
The Our Father: A Prayer of Consolation
and A Prayer of Challenge
From the time of Jesus to our present moment, the Our Father has held an honored place in Christian spirituality. It is a prayer that unites us to the mind and heart of Jesus
(a consolation) but also a prayer that confronts us with the call to bring its contemplative realities into our contemporary mission to be and act as Christians in a world that frequently resists its message (a challenge). It is a prayer that reminds us that Lent is both a time of reflection and a summons to bear the Cross that leads to Resurrection. Let this Lent be a season of contemplation should we find ourselves living within the midst of burdens, challenges and unexpected chaos.
