St. John Fisher Roman Catholic Church

There is a saying used in the sports world, and many times in the business world as well, that has become a cliché: “There’s no ‘I’ in team.”  

Nor is there any “I” in the “Our Father”.  The “Our Father” is a community prayer, a family prayer, even when recited alone. It contains our, us and we and not my, me or I.

Certainly Luke’s version is somewhat different than what the Church made the ‘official’ version from Matthew’s Gospel, but both are in agreement in their use of pronouns.

Whichever version you pray, Jesus is telling us something important: Even in prayer, the Kingdom is about community.

And, guess what?

There’s no “I” in heaven either.
