Liturgy Wars II

In the old translation, the lead in to the Lord’s Prayer goes: “Let us pray with confidence to the Father in the words our Saviour gave us: Our Father…”

In the new: “At the Saviour’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say: Our Father…”

It is very, very daring for puny miserable bipeds on a hunk of rock hurtling through some backwater of the cosmos to call the Creator of the universe their Father. So daring that it would only be explicable as the result of a command from that very same Creator, as the result of our rather parochial situation being turned completely on its head by Him. It is good and healthy to be reminded of this.
