Catechism of the Day

The Lord's Prayer

as the head of the family should teach it in all simplicity to his household

Introduction

Our Father who art in heaven.

What does this mean?

God would by these words tenderly invite us to believe
that He is our true Father,
and that we are His true children,
so that we may with all boldness and confidence ask Him
as dear children ask
their dear father.

Oratio Dominica

quomodo paterfamilias eam suae familiae simplicissime tradere debeat

Introductio

Pater noster, qui es in caelis.

Quae est horum verborum sententia?

Deus amanter nos hac praefatiuncula invitat,
ut vere credamus eum nostrum verum Patrem
nosque eius veros filios esse,
ut eum confidentius pleni fiducia invocemus,
quemadmodum videmus liberos certa fiducia
aliquid a parentibus suis petere.
