Malta Minute with the Catechism: Jesus Prays

  • Program #: 222
  • Description: Where is the drama of prayer fully revealed? The Catholic Catechism tells us it is first revealed to us by observing Jesus Christ - the Word of God - in prayer; then by hearing how He teaches us to pray, in order to realize how He hears our prayer. Jesus learned to pray in his human heart under the guidance of his Mother. He learns the rhythms of the prayers of his people in the synagogue at Nazareth and the temple in Jerusalem. But at the age of 12, he makes known that his prayer springs from an otherwise secret source - his relationship with God the Father. For example, He tells his earthly parents, that He must be about his heavenly Father’s business. Luke’s gospel emphasizes that before all the decisive moments of Jesus’ mission - his Baptism, his Transfiguration, his Passion, he prays - humbly committing his will to his Father’s. This is Peggy Stanton and this has been the Order of Malta’s Minute with the Catechism.
