“For a Christian, to pray is simply to say ‘Abba’, to say “Papa”, to say ‘Dad’, to say ‘Father’ but with the trust of a child.”
Those words of simple encouragement to trust were at the core of Pope Francis’ commentary on the Lord’s Prayer during the January 16,2 2019, General Audience in Paul VI Hall.
“God looks for you, even if you do not seek Him. God loves you, even if you have forgotten about Him,” the Pope said. “God perceives in you a beauty, even if you think you have squandered all your talents in vain.”
The Holy Father made it
