Jesus Christ Wrote More Than The Our Father

John 17:20-26


Christ taught us to pray with the Our Father.

In this passage, He teaches us again.

When we have struggles, let’s depend on Christ.

We can suffer with confidence in Him.


Perhaps your suffering is poetry.

This poem will be over in a minute.


Thank you for listening.  This is better

Than talking to myself.  It’s great to be

With you.  Let us be Hall of Fame Legates.


From Scott Hahn, we know that family is

The first society.  Like Pope Francis,

Let us celebrate the good of the Church.

Patrick McCaskey
