The Lord's Prayer by Romano Guardini

You may have read the Catechism of the Catholic Church and you may have studied The Baltimore Catechism, too, but if you don�t know the Catechism that Jesus gave us, you don�t know your Faith.

Christ taught us the Lord�s Prayer as the first and most important of all our catechisms. If you haven�t considered it carefully, now�s the time to begin � and here�s the book to help you uncover the riches Christ placed in these familiar words.

    I was stunned, and again stunned by the succinct yet powerful writing of this book. The writer has made the words of Jesus come across so strong that it draws you closer and closer to the Lord's prayer... and you so much want to relish each chapter that you don't want to rush. You want to take as much time as possible and the desire to reread the lines just comes to you naturally.
