"This is how you are to pray: Our Father"

Commentary of the day
Saint Cyprian (c.200-258), Bishop of Carthage and martyr
The Lord’s Prayer, 8 (trans. cf breviary ; Monday of the 11th week)

"This is how you are to pray: Our Father"

Before all else, Christ, the teacher of peace and of unity would not have us pray on our own and in private in such a manner that each prays only for himself. We do not say: “My Father, who art in heaven”, or, “Give me this day my bread.” Each person does not ask that his own sins only be forgiven, nor does he request for himself alone that he be not led into temptation and that he be delivered from evil. Our prayer is public and for all, and when we pray, we pray not for a single person, but for the whole people, because we are all one.

The God of peace, the teacher of harmony, who taught us unity, willed that each one should pray for all, according as he carried us all in himself alone. The three youths enclosed in the furnace observed this law of prayer… “Then the three, as with one mouth, sang a hymn and blessed God” (Dn 3,51)… We find the apostles also prayed in the same manner after the ascension of the Lord. “With one accord they devoted! themselves to prayer together with the women and Mary, the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren” (Acts 1,14). They continue! with one accord in prayer, making clear both by the urgency and harmony of their prayer that God, “who makes men to dwell in concord in a house” (Ps 68[67],7), admits only those who pray with one accord into the divine and eternal house.
