Reinhold Schneider on the Our Father

The Our Father begins with a great consolation: we are allowed to say “Father.” This one word contains the whole history of redemption. We are allowed to say “Father,” because the Son was our brother and has revealed the Father to us; because, thanks to what Christ has done, we have once more become children of God.
