The disciples of Jesus, filled with awe and wonder at his frequent recourse to prayer and his constant communion with the Father, had asked him to teach them to pray. In response, he presented to them his relationship plan between God and man in the prayer Our Father. On the one hand it has a uniquely fixed structure, yet, on the other, it is always inexhaustibly new. This book invites the reader to meditate and pray a series of well articulated reflections on the Our Father which, described as “the greatest of all works of art”, conveys various messages, ever new and real, our emotions and expectations never being the same each time we recite it. Notes of trust in the Father, expressive of the joy of belonging to His family, are spread across the book which concludes on a note of caution: Don’t say, Amen, if you have neither understood nor taken seriously the words of the Our Father in its entirety.

Titles of Jesus

A pertinent question each Christian must ask is: How much do I really know of Jesus? Certainly, we know the infancy narrative, the miracles and the more common sayings of Jesus. Is that really enough? St. Paul in his letter to the Romans writes, “And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him”? This book is intended to do that proclamation. It is prepared with the purpose of introducing the reader to the majesty and splendor of the person of Jesus. The Titles of Jesus will help all of us to understand more deeply the person of Jesus so that with St. Paul we can affirm, “I am not ashamed to know the one in whom I have put the trust.”
