audemus dicere


Have you ever considered just how brave we are to call God our Father? That we have the audacity to say "Our Father"?
Scott Hahn talks about an interview he had with a Muslim cleric,where this particular cleric became increasingly uncomfortable as Scott continually referred to God our Father. The Muslim gentleman asked Scott to "quit blaspheming". In the view of Islam, Allah is a master, not a father.
But we are told quite specifically to call our God, "father".
For those of us with problematic relationships with our earthly fathers, this can be a very difficult concept. On the other hand, having a relationship with our Heavenly Father can be a way to heal those difficulties with our earthly fathers.
Just a few random thoughts that fell out of my brain recently.
