CORNER-STONE PRAYER of the FAITH / leonard oprea

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…”

Leonard Oprea created the Breathing, an original type of essay in Romanian and world literature.The Breathing is a short, simple yet profound meditation on human condition, a meditation ended by a haiku. But – this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it re-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. There are 100 Breathings in Leonard Oprea’s work „Theophil Magus – Confessions 2004 – 20 http://reteaualiterara.ning.com/profiles/blogs/ruga-piatra-unghiulara-a-credintei-the-prayer-corner-stone-of-the06″, ed. „Universal Dalsi”, 2007, Romania)
