The Lord's Prayer Explained - "Amen & Summary"

Can I get an "amen"?!

And with that, our meditations on the Lord's Prayer come to a completion. Here, Joshua Clemmons concludes with a bit more than you'd bargain for from the title alone, showing that this prayer, from beginning to end, reveals not only what we are to desire as Christians, but the very order in which we ought to desire them. Let's hope that in our recitation of the Lord's Prayer we are disposed to the Holy Spirit who puts charity in order within us.

The Lord's Prayer Explained - "Deliver Us from Evil"

"Deliver us from evil...."

And with that, we complete the petitions of the Lord's Prayer. Joshua Clemmons: "I'm always struck at how St. Teresa of Avila finds Jesus' heart in Gethsemani and relates to it through the gift of love given to her. If we could all be so near Him, our desires would get in line too."

The Lord's Prayer Explained - "Lead Us Not Into Temptation"

"Lead us not into temptation..."

What is a temptation, who does the tempting, and how do we escape the pull towards spiritual disaster? These are some of the questions that St. Teresa, St. Ignatius, St. Francis de Sales, and St. Thomas Aquinas help us with, in this synthesis of advice and commentary on the Lord's Prayer, given to us by Joshua Clemmons, Director of Faith Formation.

St. Rita Catholic Community, Dallas

Gather + Worship + Serve + Renew

Welcome to St. Rita! We’re a vibrant Catholic community located in the heart of North Dallas, a historic community but also vibrant and fresh! A welcome place for people of all ages and all walks of life, we’re a community of Catholic Christians on fire for Jesus, committed to serving God and neighbor in our city and in our world.

Our Vision for the sort of community we strive to be can be shared in four words: Gather, Worship, Serve, Renew. As Catholics, our purpose is to be a community that welcomes and gathers all who will be drawn by our love and kindness, open to any and all. We gather first to worship God in Christ in the Mass and in the other liturgies of the Church. As Catholics, ours is the faith of the apostles, found throughout the Catholic world, and which we share in communion with our Holy Father, Pope Francis. But of course, our worship sends us out in service. Each of us are called and expected to serve in some capacity, serving those in need, serving each other, and the common good. And this we do, because through worship and service, we become people of renewal, renewing ourselves in Christ and the world by our love.

That’s it, simple! At St. Rita, we GATHER, WORSHIP, SERVE, and RENEW! Now the only question is this: Is God calling you? We believe he is, and so we invite you to discover Christ with us and to discover the Church, and the renewed you! It’s an adventure, this life of grace. Come, journey with us!
