St. Aloysius Gonzaga

Mt 6:7-15

“When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words.Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Our Daily Bread

When the Missionaries of Charity first came to New York City, I read that they did not have a refrigerator in their modest quarters in a poor section of the Bronx. They accepted only as much food as they could consume in a day, and constantly witnessed to their total dependence on God.

For those of us not called to lives of evangelical poverty, the constraints of work and family obligations dictate how often we shop for food and what we buy. Our refrigerators and freezers help us avoid waste and plan for the unexpected.

But we all need reminders of our total dependence on God. Give us this day our daily bread reminds us to ask for what we need today and trust God for the future. Our daily bread reminds us of our connection to the Body of Christ. Bread focuses on what we really need, not what we think we want. “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”

Prayer

Our Father in Heaven, your name is holy. Let us experience your kingdom on earth by doing your will. Give us what we need today and make us more aware of the needs of others. Give us the grace to forgive and to ask forgiveness. Help us recognize the temptations of evil and to praise you forever. For yours are the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
