“This Way” : A Homily on The Lord’s Prayer
Before Jesus teaches us The Lord's Prayer, he proclaims that we don't know how to pray. In that declaration, he preaches good news--in saying we don't know how to pray, we realize our need for God. But it is hard to get to that point where we recognize our need for God. In this homily, Ben explores what holds us back from relinquishing control and accepting that we don't know how to pray and, therefore, need God. (I'm indebted to Nick Lannon and his introduction to "Life is Impossible." In this homily, I reference his description of the movie,, "All is Lost."
