A prayer so venerable as The Lord’s Prayer, given by Christ himself, is certainly worthy of our esteem and attention. “Formed by Divine Teaching” is a 12-part series of commentary and analysis on this most fundamental of Christian orations. It will analyze the profundity of the message contained in such a brief collection of lines and its importance in understanding God, the Church, and the Catholic faith as a whole.
Seen below is the list, in order, of each of the 12 articles that comprise this series. As each new article is published, I will activate the appropriate link. Readers will also see it posted on the blog’s main page just like any normal article. I pray that this endeavor will be as fruitful for the reader as it is for me.
