"ABBA, FATHER"
In teaching us to pray Jesus invited us to address God with Him as "Our Father." He opened up a whole new vision of God for us.
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
Today's first reading is a poem in honor of Elijah, the prophet. Elijah was truly a great man, the representative of God to his people, who spoke in God's name. When Jesus Christ was transfigured on the mountain, two appeared with him - Moses, who represented the Law, and Elijah, who represented the prophets.
 
Elijah did not have the privilege of praying to the heavenly Father in the manner in which Jesus has taught us to pray. To Elijah, God was Lord, the creator of  heaven and earth and all they contain, the protector and guide of His people with whom He had entered into a covenant of fidelity and love. But the prophet had no revelation of the fatherhood of God. It was left to Jesus, to reveal that God is literally his Father, and that we have been called to enter into a relationship with the Father through Christ Jesus which makes us God's children.  In teaching us to pray Jesus invited us to address God with Him as "Our Father." He opened up a whole new vision of God for us.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Most people know the words to this special prayer, but do we know this prayer by heart - that is, are we in tune with this prayer? Do we see that we truly have a relationship with God that flows into all aspects of our lives? Take time with this prayer today, let each word speak to you, and then reflect upon it. We love you, "Abba, Papa".
