Abba Father, Bring us Jesus

Cycle COrdinary TimeWeek 17

by Bishop Robert BarronJuly 24, 2016


The Our Father, the Lord’s Prayer, is a request for Christ. As we examine this most famous prayer line by line, we see it's all about Jesus. That He might come and have communion with us is precisely what we hope for when we cry out to "our Abba who art in heaven."
