Oliver Wendell Holmes and “Our Father”

Oliver Wendell Holmes and “Our Father”

The great Supreme Court Justice stated: “My religion is summed up in the first two words of the Lord’s Prayer, Our Father.” The truth of our relationship with the miraculous summed up succinctly. Of course, there will always be sad exceptions, but aren’t we truly at our best when our children are involved? The concept of a cruel and despotic ruler of the Heavens imbued with all the evil and capricious tendencies humans unfortunately have shown when placed in positions of ultimate authority is destroyed finally and forever by this simple and revolutionary truth about our relationship with God, “Our Father.” As the Great Carpenter taught: If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? (Matthew 7:11).

So fearlessly ask Him who has all power and knowledge for direction, for intuitive understanding of the seemingly confusing vagaries and injustices of life. Holding steadfast to the belief, in our heart of hearts, that Our Father’s love is boundless, unencumbered by human limitation, frailty and fear, beyond any human’s ability to truly measure or fully comprehend, simply miraculous.
