Why OUR FATHER?  or, The CORNER-STONE of the FAITH

I confess now my own meditation about the Prayer “Our Father”:

“Our Father”, as it was presented to us by Lord Jesus Christ Himself in the Gospel according to Matthew 6/9-13 (the manuscripts representative of the Byzantine text), I consider it to be the quintessence of Lord’s teachings about Faith.

Thus “Our Father” is composed from 7 (seven) enounces:

  • THE RECOGNITION OF GOD’S EXISTENCE

(Our Father, Who art in heaven, )

  • CALLING FOR GOD

(hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come,)

  • THE RECOGNITION OF GOD’S WILL

(Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.)

  • GOD’S GIFT OF LIFE

(Give us this day our daily bread,)

  • GOD’S GIFT OF LOVE

(and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us;)

  • GOD’S GIFT OF HOLY GHOST

(and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.)

  • THE COGNITION OF GOT INTO GOD 

(For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, now and for ever and ever. Amen.)
Therefore we have the cross formed by one arm:

v       The Recognition of God’s Existence and The Recognition of God’s Will ,

the other arm:

v       Calling for God and The Cognition of God into God (which is the top of the Cross).

The Cross revolving is always oriented towards and aims The Cognition of God into God; always being counter clockwise, from Earth to Heaven.

The Cross revolving is possible but through the existence and the movement of the axis formed by The gift of life and The gift of love and The gift of Holy Spirit, all of them from God and all together being the Saint Trinity: The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost, in unity and in living union – One God Forever.

The Cross revolving is infinite, because God is infinite.

But – in this ever ascending spiral every man has his time, the time of his salvation, because this is the role of the prayer “Our Father”.

So here it is – “The Genesis”.

So here it is – “The Jacob’s ladder”.

“Our Father” is – I believe – the simplest, concrete and efficient, but mostly revealing too, prayer ever given to the mankind.

That is the reason I dare say that in a laic level Jesus Christ is the genius gift presented to the world by the Jew people.

The world, as we know today, it would not be possible without The Crucifixion on Golgotha.

And for all these from the above, I believe that Jesus is The Christ.

Therefore, “Our Father” is the CORNER-STONE PRAYER of FAITH.

“ … a desert – this beach…/

the endless purple ocean – that…/

… man cries… quietly…”

De ce  TATAL NOSTRU ?  sau, RUGA PIATRA UNGHIULARA a CREDINTEI   

Marturisesc acum meditatia mea despre rugaciunea “Tatal Nostru”:

     “Tatal Nostru“, asa cum ne-a fost daruita aceasta rugaciune de catre Domnul Iisus Christos Insusi in Evanghelia dupa Matei 6/ 9-13, eu o consider chintesenta invataturii Domnului despre Credinta.

Astfel, “Tatal Nostru “ este compusa din 7(sapte)  enunturi:

  • RECUNOASTEREA EXISTENTEI LUI DUMNEZEU

( Tatal nostru care esti in ceruri, )

  • CHEMAREA LUI DUMNEZEU

( Sfinteasca-se Numele Tau, vie Imparatia Ta, )

  • RECUNOASTEREA VOINTEI LUI DUMNEZEU

( faca-se voia Ta, precum in Cer, asa si pe Pamint.)

  • DARUL DE VIATA AL LUI DUMNEZEU

( Piinea noastra cea de toate zilele da-ne-o noua astazi)

  • DARUL DE IUBIRE AL LUI DUMNEZEU

( si ne iarta noua greselile noastre, precum iertam si noi gresitilor nostri)

  • DARUL DE DUH SFINT AL LUI DUMNEZEU

( si nu ne duce pe noi in ispita, ci ne izbaveste de cel rau.)

  • CUNOASTEREA LUI DUMNEZEU INTRU DUMNEZEU

( Ca a Ta este Imparatia si Puterea si Slava, acum si pururea si in vecii vecilor. Amin.)

      Avem deci, crucea formata din :

v                   Recunoasterea Existentei Lui Dumnezeu  si  Recunoasterea Vointei Lui Dumnezeu ,

celalalt brat fiind:

v                   Chemarea Lui Dumnezeu  si Cunoasterea Lui Dumnezeu intru Dumnezeu.

    Rotirea crucii este indreptata intotdeauna inspre  si tinteste Cunoasterea Lui Dumnezeu intru Dumnezeu; intotdeauna in sensul invers rotirii acelor ceasornicului.

    Rotirea crucii nu este posibila decit prin existenta si miscarea axei formata din Darul de viata si Darul de iubire si Darul de Duh Sfint , toate de la Dumnezeu si care nu sint altceva decit Sfinta Trinitate : Tatal, Fiul si Sfintul Duh, in unitate si uniune vie – Dumnezeu Unul Etern.

    Rotirea crucii este infinita, caci Dumnezeu este infinit.

    Dar in aceasta spirala ce urca necontenit, fiecare om isi are timpul sau, timpul implinirii mintuirii sale, fiindca acesta este rostul rugaciunii “Tatal Nostru“.

Iata deci – “Geneza”.

Iata deci – “ Scara lui Iacov ”.

“Tatal Nostru“ este – cred eu – cea mai simpla si concreta si eficienta, dar si revelatorie rugaciune oferita vreodata omenirii.

   Pentru acestea de mai sus, eu afirm ca in plan laic, Iisus Christos este darul

de geniu oferit lumii de catre poporul evreu.

Lumea pe care o stim astazi asa cum o stim, nu ar fi fost posibila fara Crucificarea de pe Golgota. 

Si pentru acestea de mai sus, eu cred ca, Iisus este Christosul.

Iar, “Tatal Nostru” este RUGA PIATRA-UNGHIULARA a CREDINTEI.

“…pustie plaja…/

infinit oceanul mov…/

un om – plinge stins…”

Themes are the life purpose, the ultimate springs of human actions… Intelligence, laconic sarcasm, humor, right targeting. How could we not be indebted to the author? He put his talent of storytelling to serve an exhortation which is nothing else than the health response in the presence of the morbid, the simplicity in the face of artificial, the man-loving of light against darkness and evil./Nicolae Steinhardt – European philosopher, essayist and author); “A novelist and essayist of Leonard Oprea’s literary value does not need any introduction. From no one.” /Valeriu Gherghel – European philosopher, essayist, literary critic and author)
