A REFLECTION ON THE “OUR FATHER” BY THE SPANISH SCRIPTURE SCHOLAR - JOSE PAGOLA

PART TWO

 

Give us today our daily bread.

 

Now Jesus focuses on specific human needs. Give us each the food we need to live. Let no one go without bread today.  We do not ask for abundant wealth and well-being, we do not want riches to accumulate, only bread for everyone.  

 

Let those who are hungry eat; let your poor people stop weeping and begin to laugh; let us see them living with dignity. Give us all a foretaste of the bread that one day we will all eat together, seated at   your table.  We want to see it now. 

 

Forgive us our debts as we, in the act of saying this, forgive our debtors.

 

We need your forgiveness and mercy. Our prayer is sincere. In asking this we are forgiving those who are indebted to us.  We do not want to nurture resentment or feelings of revenge against anyone. We want your forgiveness to transform our hearts and make us live in mutual forgiveness.

 

Do not let us fall into temptation.

 

We are weak, exposed to all kinds of dangers and risks that can ruin our life and remove us permanently from God’s reign.  

 

We are threatened by the mystery of evil. That is why Jesus teaches us to pray: Do not let us be tempted to reject your reign and your justice. Give us your power. In the midst of temptation and evil, let us depend on your powerful help.

 

Rescue us from the evil one.

 

Our Father ends with a cry for help that still echoes in our life: Father, rescue us from evil!
