Bem-aventurados os mansos, porque eles herdarão a terra; Bem-aventurados os que têm fome e sede de justiça, porque eles serão fartos; Bem-aventurados os misericordiosos, porque eles alcançarão misericórdia; Bem-aventurados os limpos de coração, porque eles verão a Deus; Bem-aventurados os pacificadores, porque eles serão chamados filhos de Deus; Bem-aventurados os que sofrem perseguição por causa da justiça, porque deles é o reino dos céus; Bem-aventurados sois vós, quando vos injuriarem e perseguirem e, mentindo, disserem todo o mal contra vós por minha causa.(Mt.5)

Brethren, 12 you were buried with Christ in baptism; you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised Christ from the dead. 13 Now you were dead because of your sins, and your bodies had not received circumcision, until God brought you to life together with Christ, and forgave us all sins. 14There was a bill against us to be paid, but he canceled it, despite legal obligations, and eliminated it, nailing it to the cross.
You have received the Spirit of adoption; / it is for him that we cry: Abba, Father! (Rom 8,15) – R.
Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Luke – 1 Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he had finished, one of his disciples asked him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples." 2Jesus replied, “When you pray, say, ‘Father, hallowed be your name. Thy Kingdom come. 3Give us the bread we need each day, 4and forgive us our sins, for we also forgive all our debtors; and lead us not into temptation'”. 5And Jesus added, “If one of you has a friend and goes to him at midnight and says to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves, 6because a friend of mine has come on a journey and I have nothing to offer him,' 7e if the other responds from within: 'Don't bother me! I have already locked the door, and my children and I are already in bed; I cannot get up to give you the loaves,' 8 I tell you that even if the other does not get up to give them because he is your friend, he will get up at least because of his impertinence and give him as much as he needs. 9 Therefore I say to you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. 10For whoever asks, receives; he who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, it will be opened. 11 Will any of you who are a father, if his son ask for a fish, will he give him a snake? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
On his way to Jerusalem, Jesus continues to teach his disciples. Seeing the Master pray, a disciple asks him to teach them how to pray, as the rabbis did. Faced with the disciple's question, the Master offers them a model of prayer, the Our Father. The first aspect of this prayer is our divine sonship. We address God as a father. He is the Father of us all. Jesus teaches us and invites us to learn from him the way to address God, calling him Dad, who takes care of each of his sons and daughters with love and affection. To ask that the Kingdom of God be established on earth is to recognize that we will have all that is necessary for a life worthy of sons and daughters of God: land to cultivate, roof to live in, work to support ourselves. Kingdom established, we will live in peace and harmony in the family, community and society. God's name will be sanctified as life blossoms. The glory of God is the life of human beings. The parable teaches us to persevere in prayer, to trust in the Father. He offers us the gift of the Spirit, so that we know how to discern what is most important for life; always and continuously seeking what dignifies human life. We must never give up asking the Father and looking for what makes us more human. Lord who teaches us in everything, who illuminates all paths to reach the ideal, who gives us the divine gift of forgiving and forgetting the evil that is done to us, that every moment of life is with you, I want in this short dialogue to thank you for everything and confirm once again that it will not be the least desire I feel to be with you one day and with all friends in the house of paternal happiness.
