Journeying with the Founder Day #145

The soul of all Christ’s prayers is that particular attitude toward the Father that is expressed by the word “Abba.” This is the only Aramaic expression that we have in the Gospel, and it makes an almost immediate and photographic image—inexpressible with any other words—of Jesus’ feelings of love for, tenderness toward, confidence in, and abandonment to the Father. It is the same expression that the Spirit repeats in
us “in expressible groans,” to which we must abandon ourselves as we try to imitate Christ in this profound relationship of intimate love with the Father. (Prayer)
