The Lord's Prayer condenses the essentials of the message of Jesus and of the Christian spirituality. It shows the Gospel is not just a doctrine or a body of dogmas; but a filial relationship with the living God revealed to us as a Father. This is the good news which must resound in a culture full of hope-lacking myths. The Song of Bread is an up-to-date commentary to the Lord's Prayer, combining biblical research and poetic lyricism. Scientific rigor and suggestions for a better life are combined in this reflection on the prayer that Jesus taught his followers.
