Our Father in Heaven

I had to be at work at the uncivilized hour of 5am, so no opportunity for Mass this morning. I made up for it by getting to the Convent of Divine Love just in time for Vespers. As the nuns began chanting the Our Father in their heavenly voices, I had an image of children speaking lovingly of the head of their family. How often do I say the words of the Our Father and address them to a mighty and powerful God without ever stopping to consider the paternal tenderness with which He looks upon His children? As the nuns chanted, I couldn't help but see an image of beautiful little girls singing of the joy of life in their Father's house.
