Do not babble

June 18, 2020 4:00 am

“In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” (MT 6: 7-8)

It is our beginning: we have one word for every situation and all occasions: mama! It is for looking for safety, for food, for solutions, and for entertainment, for answers and for permissions. Our Lord teaches us the next word: “Abba! Father!” and with this name everything comes to us:
“Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”

“You have received a spirit of adoption as sons through which we cry: Abba! Father!” (Gospel Acclamation)
