Hallowed be thy name

Fr Richard Leonard SJ describes The Lord’s Prayer
as “the 58 most powerful words in the world”.


Fr Richard Leonard SJ is a man of many parts: Jesuit priest, author, educator and film critic, in addition to being an engaging public speaker. In this podcast with Pat Coyle from Irish Jesuit Comunications, he brings all of those elements into the discussion. He explains why we are “on very holy ground” when reciting The Lord’s Prayer, “not only because the Lord taught it to us, but also that what we’re saying is really profound.”
