Do you know the Pater Noster (the Our Father in Latin)?

Our Lord himself taught us the beautiful Our Father prayer. It’s such a spiritually enriching prayer that it would take us years to mediate on each line.

St. Therese of Lisieux said:

“Sometimes when I am in such a state of spiritual dryness that not a single good thought occurs to me, I say very slowly the ‘Our Father,’ or the ‘Hail Mary,’ and these prayers suffice to take me out of myself, and wonderfully refresh me.”

St. Therese

The Our Father teaches is that indeed, the Creator of the Universe is Our Father, and that Christ is our brother.

St. John Chrysostom says:

”He who calls God, Father, confesses through this sole appellation, deliverance from sins and retraction of hell and righteοusness and sanctification and redemption and adoption and heritage and brotherhood to the Only Begotten Son, as well as to the granting of the Holy Spirit.”

St. John Chrysostom, Treatise to Matthew, homily 19, Greek Fathers of the Church, vol. IX, ρ. 668

The Our Father Prayer teaches us that we can go to our heavenly Father for all our needs. God knows the things we need without us having to ask him, but he wills that we pray so that we can draw closer to him, and to learn to depend on him.

Why Pray the Pater Noster

Of course, we pray the Our father in English or whatever language we speak. However, there is something about praying the Our Father prayer in Latin.

Firstly, Latin is the universal language of the Church. Secondly, exorcists say that the “devil hates latin.” Latin is an old language that has been prayed by our ancestors in the faith. It brings mystery and affects our brains in a way that is unexplainable.

The Pater Noster – Latin Our Father Prayer

Pater Noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum.

Adveniat regnum tuum.

Fiat voluntas tua,

sicut in caelo et in terra.

Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,

et dimitte nobis debita nostra

sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.

Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo.
